James Ensor

James Ensor 1860-1949  Demons Teasing Me  1895  hand colored etching 4.37" x 5.98"

When I was a grad student at SAIC in the mid 70's one of my favorite places to go was the Print and Drawing Room at the Art Institute. Sam Carini (1917-2002) would bring out any print or drawing that you would ask for. One of my favorites was this Ensor. I was and am in love with his line and compositions to say nothing of his subject matter. More than the prints and drawings, I miss Sam for his generosity and knowledge.
