GEETERE, Frans de (1895-1973). The whole lyre. Suite of 14 original drawings. Circa 1923.

Suite of 14 original drawings for a project probably not completed entitled "Toute la lyre". In the characteristic style of the Belgian artist and great erotic illustrator Frans de Geetere, this suite of 14 drawings, relatively cautious in comparison with the artist's work, does not seem to have been the subject of an engraved suite. Graphite, pen, black and brown ink, grey and brown wash on strong vellum paper.

Approximately 361 x 255 mm. 12 of the 14 drawings are signed by the artist, one constituting the title of the suite. One drawing has been made on the back of an engraving by the artist (wet spots on the back, frayed margins, one drawing with an old fold, another with a tear).
