A12b – First trumpet – Hail and fire V2
“Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them. The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.” (Revelation VIII, 6 – 7)
The Breda Catalog from which we get the accompanying information stops at A11. From this engraving we therefore have no additional information, only the bible verse because it is on the engraving itself.
This work was made in Chacras de Coria (Argentina) but an exact sketching and finishing date is unknown, Contrary to what Delhez usually did, for this series – starting from A9 – he forgot to write down the correct dates and afterwards he couldn’t remember them.
This engraving doesn’t have Delhez’s actual signature, only the remark ‘Epreuve ‘d Artsite’ is visible. Probably Delhez forgot to sign the engraving. Therefore we don’t ask the price we normally ask for engravings of this series.
