About

A photocopy will be provided to the purchaser for documentation Printer: Atelier Crommelynck, Paris Reference: Cramer (book) 140, Bloch 1255, Baer 1443 published state This is the most famous image of the portfolio. It is a later reprise of the famous 1936 work Faune devloilant une femme. Note: Le Cocu Magnifique is a Belgian play written by Fernand Crommelynck. The plot of the play is as follows: Bruno, the village scribe, is married to a beautiful and devoted young woman named Stella. He makes a good living composing love letters for the uneducated villagers, many of which are addressed to his wife. Bruno's eloquence can lift him off into rhapsodies of brilliant exaggeration. As a character verging on the manic, his paranoia is easily excited. He convinces himself that his fear of being cuckolded can be appeased only by the certainty of knowing he is a cuckold. Therefore, he offers his wife first to his best friend and then, when that fails to appease him, to all the young men of the village. This demented decision disrupts village life: the town turns violently against him, and the women of the village threaten Stella with torture, degradation and expulsion.
