Rapport de Chaque Chose avec son Essence (From the COMPLETE SET of three prints)
LEOPOLD SURVAGE
French, (1879-1968)
Linoleum cuts (or possibly woodcuts), 1935, edition 20. 10 3/4 x 7 7/8 in. Each print is signed, dated and numbered in pencil. Each in initialed in the block, lower right. They are superb impressions in fine condition with full margins. (Plate I has some rippling in the outer margins.) These surrealist style works are numbered I-III, II-III and III-III. Survage was a French painter and printmaker and studied at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. (He was of Russian-Finnish descent.) He was friendly with Alexander Archipenko, Albert Gleizes and Amadeo Modigliani. He also produced stage, tapestry and textile designs. He was influenced by André Masson in the 1930s. These potent works are rare as a set. We've seen them before individually and also numbered differently, suggesting additional small editions were printed. Survage was inducted into France's Légion d'Honneur in 1963.

(There's a skillful and barely noticeable repaired split in the upper left margin which goes to the image but not within. The same split extends slight along the platemark.) This early work was published in this state as part of the French Set. This was a popular print during Whistler's lifetime and that interest continues to this day.

This is a superb, luminous impression of this very rare print. The margins are probably full. The condition is very good apart from a mild trace of a mat line in the outer margins. There are three printing creases; one very subtle one affecting the blank area in the lower left and two in the lower margin with one just touching the image at bottom. For normal viewing distance these are not noticeable. Hjert & Hjert lists an edition of 15-18 impressions. The newer catalogue by the Zorn Gallery lists 5-15 copies of this, the third state, and 15-18 copies in the fourth state. There's a third state impression in the Wallace DeWolfe and Charles Deering Collections at the Art Institute of Chicago. Ex-collection: Max Biach (Lugt 5532) This Viennese collector was a prominent Zorn collector, among other artists, and Delteil mentions seven of his prints in his catalogue including this one.
