Before going out into the wide world and gaining a foothold in Argentina, Victor Delhez (1901, Antwerp – 1985, Mendoza (Argentina)) had already made a name for himself as an explorer within the Flemish artistic vanguard.
During the first post-war years, he supplied illustrations for various magazines, such as the renowned avant-garde magazine Het Overzicht of Michel Seuphor and Jozef Peeters. In this early period, it is usually expressionist wood and lino cuts in which Delhez uses the black and white contrast with abstract edits, characteristic for the medium, and were used in the best manner.
This lino dates back to this early period. Below the print, in addition to his signature in pencil, Delhez also mentioned ep(reuve) d'artiste.
The page is in almost perfect condition; only the top edge shows creases and there is a small spot next to the print on the bottom left.
