Indian ink on paper
24,5 x 32 cm – 9 5/8 x 12 5/8 in.
by Edouard Goerg (1893 – 1969)
Edouard Goerg had an immediately identifiable style, particularly poetic, which is why he was one of the most searched French illustrators of the first half of the 20th century. One could compare his life to that of Chagall, both marked by the passing of their beloved wives, and by the emergence of works that followed. Thus, Goerg developed a dreamlike imaginary highly prized by collectors, where women and flowers become indistinguishable.
