Angel Hovering over a Town with two Levels and many Bridges (Engel Boven tweeplannige Stad met veel Viadukten) (Steen IV) - VICTOR DELHEZ
Medium: wood engraving
Wood engraving, 1945, Breda catalogue 619, edition unknown. 15 5/8 x 13 in. Signed and titled in pencil; also inscribed, "épreuve d'artiste." This is a superb impression of this tour de force of wood engraving. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. This print combines architectural fantasy work, which Delhez mastered in the series "Architecture and Nostalgia," with his interest in the two dimensional sculpted figure. He was a visionary in both his combination of subjects and his ability to transform the medium into something beyond the skills of his contemporaries.
