Three Virtues (Drie Deugend) - VICTOR DELHEZ
Medium: wood engraving
Wood engraving , 1943, Breda catalogue # 490, edition unknown. 11 3/4 x 9 in. Signed in pencil and also inscribed "épeuve d'artiste." This is is a fine impression with full margins. The paper is a cream colored wove which is typically what Delhez printed on. His editions were always very small and each impression is usually inscribed as an artists proof. This early work from his Danse Macabre series, also called Dodendans, is exemplary of Delhez's interest in humor and the macabre. This is his version of the Chinese proverb, "Hear no Evil, See no Evil, Speak no Evil."
