        Historia de Una Mujer.

      - Barcelona, Fugarull 1880. Folio contemporary quarter calf; [2]pp and 50 chromolitho plates including an illustrated title. Printed title browned, spots here and there, a rather good copy. A captivating moral tale in picture and scant words with - as is traditional in the best moral tales - all the attention lavished on the rise and triumph, the excesses and debauchery, of our beautiful heroine. Only a couple of plates show repentance and retribution - the last shows the wasted, destroyed beauty gazing plaintively and helplessly at the somewhat zombie-like nun who must be watching the approach of the angel of abject death. Among the work's many delights is the portrait gallery of what would now be called creepy old perves, those older gentlemen that once could freely cluster around young beauties like vultures round a ripe zebra. Planas was a busy illustrator - trained as a lithographer in Paris, and the quality of these need no apology - whose best work centres around the games of the night and the pleasures of the flesh. Apparently this work was conceived as a series of cigarette cards before appearing in this much more satisfying format.

        Die Kinderschar

      . Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts monogrammiert: "WSt"; 11,5 x 22 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Seit Mitte der 1880er Jahre widmete sich Wilhelm Steinhausen intensiv der Porträtmalerei. Vor allem seine Mäzene und Künstlerkollegen, aber auch seine Familie hielt er in zahlreichen Gemälden und Zeichnungen fest. Er porträtierte sie gerne bei alltäglichen Beschäftigungen. Seine Kinder einzeln oder zu zweit, seine Frau mit und ohne Kinder, Selbstporträts des Künstlers mit seiner Frau, beinahe alle Konstellationen sind in seinem OEuvre überliefert. Er heiratete seine Frau Ida 1880, seine sechs Kinder wurden zwischen 1881 und 1893 geboren. Es ist sehr wahrscheinlich, dass es sich bei der kleinen Skizze um ein Gruppenporträt seiner Kinder handelt. Es fällt nicht schwer, sich auszumalen, wie sich an einem sonnigen Tag alle Kinder für einen kurzen Augenblick am Wohnungsfenster versammelt haben. Die Linien sind schnell, wirken fast hektisch. Lediglich drei Gesichter werden angedeutet, sonst muss sich der Künstler auf den Umriss der Figuren beschränken. Die Kinder sind in Bewegung, deswegen wurden manche Silhouetten doppelt gezeichnet. Gleich wird dieser Moment vorbei sein. Der Künstler wollte ihn aber unbedingt festhalten.
