Mahlon Blaine
The Conjurer

1930

$5,500

About

This is a fascinating and electric in coloring and technique pastel and conté crayon large format erotic artwork by the well listed illustrator and fine artist Mahlon Blaine. The darkly seemingly ritualistic scene showcases a sleeping nude goddess conjuring spirits which emerge in the vision of a sprawling female nude with a forked serpent's tongue. The sharp strokes and color palette evoke the magnetism of the subject, who seems so fiery in her unbridled passions as to be literally giving off sparks. Stylistically this is much like the the pen & ink drawings the artist created in 1929 as symbolist illustrations in Paul Verlaine's Hashish and Incense, the model pictured was likely his wife Duskal Blaine. Sight size of 20" x 26" Framed 32" x 38"
