Partijganger (Partisan) - VICTOR DELHEZ
Medium: wood engraving
Wood engraving, 1948, Breda catalogue 496, edition unknown. 11 3/4 x 9 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a fine impression in fine condition. The margins are full. This compelling image is Plate 23 from the series "Danse Macabre." Dehlez again presents himself as both artist and thinker. On the left we see the artist's strong Christian faith being represented and and the right shows symbols of fascism, money (greed), lust and even freemasonry.
One translation of the title is "fanatic adept."
