Medium: wood engraving
Wood engraving, 1946, Breda catalogue 626, edition unknown. 15 5/8 x 12 7/8 in. Signed in pencil. Inscribed "épreuve d'artiste." This is a fine impression in very good condition. The margins are full. This is plate VII from his Steen series. The "Venus" depicted in the image is the statue of a fertility goddess found in an archaeological excavation in the town of Willensdorf, Austria in 1908. Delhez entertains us here by placing this prehistoric statue in the role of a stone age traffic cop.
