The Deadly Sins, Dominated by Death (Les Péchés Capitaux, Dominés par la Mort) - JAMES ENSOR - etching

JAMES ENSOR
Belgian, (1860-1949)

Etching, 1904, Taevernier 126, Elesh 126, only state; edition unknown. 5 1/2 x 3 5/8 in. Signed in the plate, lower right. Signed, dated and titled in pencil. The print is also counter signed on the verso by the artist. This is a very fine impression printed on simili-Japan paper. The sheet is exceptionally large measuring 19 5/8 x 12 5/8 in. The condition is fine apart from an exceedingly faint suggestion of toning within an earlier mat opening. This work was the introductory image for the portfolio called "The Deadly Sins" which consisted of eight etchings by Ensor and a preface by Eugène Demolder. Demolder describes it in the following terms, "The frontispiece brings the seven deadly sins together under a symbolic death's head with black-feathered wings." (Unidentified collector's mark, verso.)      $5,500
