The Seventh Veil (De Zevende Sluier) - VICTOR DELHEZ - wood engraving

Belgian, (1902-1985)

Wood engraving, 1949, small edition. 11 7/8 x 9 in. Signed in the block with the monogram. Signed and titled in pencil and inscribed, "√©preuve d'artiste." This is a fine, dramatic impression printed on white wove paper. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. This is plate XXVIII from Delhez's Danse Macabre series. Essentially, it's a study in psychoanalysis with a woman on a table and the doctor behind her. Delhez was fascinated by film and cinematography and this complex, bizarre vision reflects this interest.       SOLD
