B48 – L’amour et la cràne
“Le globe lumineux et frêle, Prend un grand essor, Crève et crache son âme grêle, Comme un songe d’or…”
The 48th engraving in the Les Fleurs Du Mal series. From what is stated in the Breda Catalog about this engraving, we can deduce that Delhez was not very satisfied with this work. He describes it with a French wordplay that is difficult to translate into English.
This work is the last one of the second series of five called ‘Tablaux Parisiens’.
