Stone Series # 3 (Steen 3) - VICTOR DELHEZ - wood engraving

Belgian, (1902-1985)

Wood engraving, 1944-45, Breda catalogue 612, small edition. 15 5/8 x 12 3/4 in. Signed in pencil and inscribed "epreuve d'artiste." This is a very fine impression with the details printing clearly. The margins are full and the condition is fine. This series of blockprints by Delhez is a tribute to his friend, the Latin American sculptor Lorenzo Dominquez (1901-1963). In dramatic fashion, this print is a meditation on the relationship of the graphic arts to other art forms, most notably, sculpture and architecture. The sculptor and his wife are in the lower left, the engraver is also there in the foreground on the right, looking left. This is a tour de force of engraving and a great example of Delhez's work. We have many other prints and welcome your inquiry.      SOLD
