Parsifal1894 by Jean Delville

Delville's oeuvre includes a charcoal of 1890 and an 1894 oil painting entitled Parsifal, and an 1894 pastel subtitled Parsifal.These early works employ concepts and techniques that characterize his subsequent visual and literary works. Equally significant, his Parsifal images portray an ideal which would occupy him throughout his life. In the artist's lifelong quest for meaning, Parsifal became a means of self-actualization.
