EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an intriguing artwork titled "Le Diable de Papefiguiere" from the book "Tales et nouvelles en vers" by Jean La Fontaine, published in 1762. Created by an unknown artist in the 18th century, this piece is part of a private collection and depicts a scene filled with symbolism and sensuality. The engraving portrays a naked woman surrounded by flames, representing her descent into hell. The devil himself stands beside her, embodying temptation and wickedness. This image explores themes of sexuality, libertinage, and eroticism prevalent in French literature during that time. Jean La Fontaine's fables were known for their moral lessons disguised as entertaining stories. This particular artwork reflects the bourgeoisie society's fascination with tales that pushed boundaries while still being socially acceptable. Giancarlo Costa has skillfully captured this historical masterpiece through his lens, preserving its intricate details for generations to appreciate. The composition evokes curiosity and invites viewers to delve deeper into the complexities of art history. As we admire this enchanting print, let us reflect on how art can transcend time and continue to provoke thought and discussion centuries after its creation.
