Catalogue Note

Born into an Affluent family in Drohobych, Austrian Poland, Bruno Schulz developed a passion for the arts at a young age. Through studying architecture at Lvov Polytechnic and possessing a extraordinary imagination, he developed into a masterful draftsman and writer. While working as an instructor at Drohobycz Lycée in 1920, Schultz began to work on cliché-verre illustrations for his seminal collection, The Book of Idolatry, as illustrated by the present work. The image depicts the artist in service of the figures in the background, fitting well into the themes of temptations and desire expressed throughout the series.
