The roofs of St. Nicholas (Antwerp) (Les Toits de St. Nicolas) - JULES DE BRUYCKER
JULES DE BRUYCKER
Etching, 1932, LeRoy 179, edition 122. 8 7/8 x 6 1/8 in. Signed in pencil. This is a fine, delicate impression on Japanese paper. The margins are wide and the condition is very good. (There's slight thinning in the lower right margin area.) This work is from the series Sites and Visions which consisted on twenty images; six of these were "planches refusees" which exist in rare proofs only. Always the stellar draughtsman, de Bruycker here utilizes an extraordinary viewpoint to describe his scene: the artist dominates an already dominant cathedral and the view below shows minute people walking in the streets.
