About

La femme au prisme is an original rare bookwritten by Franz Hellens (8 September 1881, Brussels – 20 January 1972, Brussels) and illustrated by Léon Spilliaert (also Leon Spilliaert; 28 July 1881 – 23 November 1946) in 1920. Original Edition. 90 Numbered Copies. Published by Editions Sélections, Bruxelles. Format: Large 8°. The dimensions of the book are indicative. The book includes unnumbered pages with Six full page reproductions of Drawings. Good conditions. Léon Spilliaert (also Leon Spilliaert; 28 July 1881 – 23 November 1946) was a Belgian symbolist painter and graphic artist. Among the best-known works of Léon Spilliaert are the images Digue la nuit and Clair de Lune et Lumières. Both works are in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. In the period 1902–1909, Spilliaert concentrated on creating complex, profound self-portraits of introspective nature. His 1903 self-portrait (Portrait de l'artiste par lui-même) is a dramatic self-presentation with ghostly apparitions in the background and a wry face in three-quarter pose. This image can be identified as a prototype for the three-quarter-portraits Spilliaert created later. Franz Hellens, born Frédéric van Ermengem (8 September 1881, Brussels – 20 January 1972, Brussels) was a prolific Belgian novelist, poet and critic. Although of Flemish descent, he wrote entirely in French, and lived in Paris from 1947 to 1971. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature four times. He is known as one of the major figures in Belgian magic realism (fantastique quotidien), and as the indefatigable editor of Signaux de France et de Belgique (later Le Disque vert). The only work translated into English is Mémoires d'Elseneur ("Memoirs from Elsinore", 1954).
