Louis Icart (1888-1950, France.) "Shackled Soul" is a colored etching, with pencil signature. Originally created in 1928, this image is of a ghost of a beautiful woman with a chained, shackled man in hell. It was used as an illustration for the 1944 edition of Goethe's "Faust," the story of a man who sold his soul to the devil. Each Louis Icart etching was enhanced with hand coloring. While he generally hand signed his etchings in the lower right corner he usually didn't do the hand coloring. This would have been done by his studio. The size is 9.5" x 7" and the artwork is framed to museum specifications, measuring 23" x 20."
