Le Prince et la ténèbre
Le Prince et la ténèbre, published in 1980, consists of seven etchings and engravings and one dry-point, all in black and white, which served as inspiration for the seven episodes of the philosophical and somewhat orientalist story by François Ricard. . . . The plates that have given birth to the story offer us stark, phantasmagorical landscapes streaked with curtains of rain. Night is everywhere; the sea and low clouds merge and undulate within an atmosphere at once shadowy and transparent, lost between isthmuses and breaks in the gloom. Suddenly, in the seventh picture, daylight bursts across the flank of the dream mountain, which has been sketched with small strokes, as in certain Japanese prints.
