Description

The four sacrilegious engravings exhibited here, Satan semant l’ivraie [Satan sowing darnel], Le Calvaire [The Calvary], L’Idole [The Idol], and Le Sacrifice [The Sacrifice], are part of a series of five heliogravures (“a process of engraving by means of the action of light on a sensitized surface” [OED]), titled Les Sataniques [The Satanic Ones] and composed by the Belgian symbolist engraver Félicien Rops (1833-1898) between 1881 and 1882. Les Sataniques were meant to be part of L’Album du Diable [The Devil’s Scrapbook], an ambitious artist’s book project aimed at combining texts and illustrations, which was never completed.
