The work comes from the inheritance of Odette Valabregue Wurzburger (French, born in Avignon, died in Cleveland in 2006), philanthropist, professor of law, co-founder of the Cleveland International Piano Competition and decorated member of the French Resistance. A similar wooden sculpture, bearing the same title and date and 79.5 cm high, was donated by Baron August Freiherr von der Heydt to the Weimar Museum of Fine Arts. The Von der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal has another similar sculpture, documented and reproduced in the catalog of the museum’s sculpture collection.
He was born in Monthermé (Ardennes, France); the family settled in Belgium. Self-taught painter, he came into contact with the Belgian symbolist poets and belongs to the Les XX group. He travels a lot and paints views of Italy, Austria and France; between 1900 and 1902 he lived in the Balearic Islands, dedicated to painting landscapes. There is his work in the Musée d’Orsay, Kröller-Müller in Otterlo and Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique in Brussels, among others.
Also titled The Lovers. The artist is almost unknown in Spain but he is famous in the field of Central European symbolism. He found inspiration in French Symbolist poets such as Stéphane Mallarmé and Rémy de Gourmont, but especially in the Belgian Symbolist poet and novelist Georges Rodenbach. Very representative of her style are her mysterious images of houses and forest panoramas, and especially parks at night with lampposts that project enigmatic shadows, such as La casa rosada (1892), which transmit the atmosphere of magic and mystery of her works; It has been said that he influenced surrealism, especially Magritte, four decades younger, for its light effects.
Born in Douai (France). The first time he exhibited at the Salon, in 1881, he changed his surname, Delacroix, to the English form Cross so as not to be confused with Eugène Delacroix; at first he uses only the name Henri but later he uses Henri-Edmond to avoid confusion with the sculptor Henri Cross.
