DD30 – Me and the Dance of Death
A skull rests on the two heads as the articular surfaces of the Atlas contact the occipital bone. The two heads are self-portraits of Delhez, wholly or partly visible, like all other heads, and which alternately represent sight, hearing, taste, smell and reason. Delhez has always accentuated the organ that belongs to the specific sense by using a stronger shade of the drawing and tone. For example, where the head represents the view, the eyes are more accentuated.
This work was made in Chacras de Coria (Argentina) between the 31st of December 1948 and the 15th of January 1950. We have three prints of this title. One of them is embedded in a passe-partout, the other two prints not. When buying please indicate which one you like to have.
