B26 – Spleen I
“Cenpendant qu’en jeu plein de sales parfums. Le beau valet de coeur et la dame de pique, causent sinistrement de leurs amours défunts.”
The 26th engraving in the Les Fleurs Du Mal series. A clear application of surealism to enrich the supernatural. It is precisely by depicting the playing cards individually that Delhez has achieved the goal of creating a supernatural atmosphere in a simple way.
This work belongs to the first series of five called ‘Spleen et Idéal’ and it’s the first one in a series of four with the title ‘Spleen’. The work comes in a passe-partout, so you can put it directly into a frame.
