Raphael Kirchner
One Thousand and One Nights - The Harem

1906

About

With great attention to detail and an exquisite sense of realism, this charcoal illustration from artist & illustrator Raphaël Kirchner is an exotic display of Middle Eastern themed eroticism, mystery and intrigue. Kirchner has painstakingly rendered the nude forms of two harem slave girls in captivity shown in a less than glamorous setting, shackled and sitting on the floor to eat. An emotional and alluring presentation. This is the original illustration; it was reproduced in heliogravure as a bookplate for a German translation of the One Thousand and One Nights stories. The 18 volume collection was titled "Das Buch der Tausend Nächte und der einen Nacht" (C.W. Stern, 1906). With uniquely trimmed margins to match the vignette style of the bookplate, this illustration has been professionally matted and framed. Truly a gorgeous example from Kirchner whose Art Nouveau illustrations and "Kirchner Girls" are among the very best of the era. Measurements: Framed: 19.5" x 23.5" – Sight Size: 13.5" x 17.75" – Image Size: 11.5" x 16.5" Excellent condition with light creasing around the edges from storage.
