Three Lithographs from "Scenes de la vie du Christ" series
1921. 12 1/4x 9 3/4in. Fine. James Ensor is a 19th century Realist and is known for his striking realizations in which he produced humourous masquerades and grotesque personages. He constructed the mask as an instrument of expression and expressed the evil nature of humans. Ensor was a Belgium artist (1860-1949). These Scenes from the Life of Christ are a portfolio of 32 lithographs executed after drawings in colored pencil made between 1911-1920. Ensor combined late medieval religious themes with carnival masks. They are a contrast between beauty and monsterly forms. The first lithograph is dated 1920, the seventh in the series, signed by Ensor and is entitled "Le Bapteme du Christ". The second lithograph is dated 1913, the fourth in the series, signed by Ensor and is entitled "Le Fuite en Egypte". The third lithograph is dated 1921, the thirty-first in the series, signed by Ensor and is entitled "La Vierge adoree par les Anges"
