Condition Report: In very good condition. Complete condition report on request as well extra pictures.
Notes: The etching depicts a seated figure in both sides, front and back, with millions of fine lines supporting the figure, the drawing acquires volume and intricacy, and questioning our sense of perception of the whole piece. The poems of the collection are highly militant, alluding to the occupation and imminent liberation; Desnos was arrested by Gestapo on February 1944, before the publication of the book, and died 15 months later.
