Catalogue Note

A painter, illustrator and stage designer, Félix Labisse was of Flemish and Polish descent and worked both in France and Belgium. A self-taught artist, he was associated with the Surrealist movement and was strongly influenced by James Ensor, whom he met in 1922. In his work, Labisse renders his poetic reveries in a Surrealist style, using a technique of smoothly painted and strongly outlined colours to make them appear almost as a form of hallucination before the viewer. In particular, he specialised in images of women, who haunt his pictures like mythical goddesses. In 1928, he co-founded the Ciné Club in Ostend, which disseminated avant-garde films by Man Ray, Carl Dreyer and Fritz Lang, and he made a film of his own, La Mort de Vénus. He settled in Paris in 1932, and exhibited in group shows devoted to Surrealism with his friends including Robert Desnos, Jean-Louis Barrault, Antonin Artaud, Jacques Prévert, André Masson, Max Ernst, Raymond Queneau and André Breton, although he was never an official member of the Surrealist group. The source of inspiration for this work was the figure of Gilles de Montmorency-Laval, Baron de Rais (1405-1440), a knight and Lord of Brittany, Anjou and Poitou. A leader in the French army and a companion-in-arms of Joan of Arc, Gilles de Rais was heir to a vast fortune and forged a distinguished military career. He was, however, later denounced by his family as a spendthrift with a penchant for alchemy and the occult. In 1440, Gilles de Rais was sentenced to death for murder and heresy although the debate regarding his guilt or innocence has long since raged.
