The Eclipse (L'Eclipse) - GEORGES DE FEURE - lithograph printed in two colors

French, (1868-1943)

Lithograph printed in two colors, probably 1896, Millman (Van Gogh Museum catalogue), No. 75 (pages 76-77), edition 20. 15 3/4 x 11 1/8 in. Initialed on the stone, lower right. This is a good impression with full margins (with a modest printing flaw in the upper left corner, on the facade of the church.) The condition is fine apart from minor handling wrinkles in the margins. Described by Millman as de Feure's "most important lithographic album," "Bruges Mystique et Sensuelle," is a series of ten prints published in late 1898 or early 1899 by the literary journal La Plume. When the set was exhibited in 1903 the prints appeared with different titles and this continues to be a source of ongoing confusion. Many of the images and the multiple titles are similar and difficult to sort out. The single print we offer here from the set relates to an 1896 drawing called "Béguines à Bruges" ('Beguine Nuns in Bruges') which is very similar in design. (See Millman 25, page 48.)      SOLD
