Showcasing visionary, strikingly original drawings executed by once-celebrated French Romantic sculptor Bra (1797-1863) in the years following his famous "mystical crisis" of 1826, this catalogue presents two scholarly essays along with excellent reproductions of 52 sheets selected from the hundreds of previously unexhibited manuscript pages in the Bra archive in Douai, the works juxtaposing symbolic figurative images or expressive studies of abstracted forms and abstruse philosophical, spiritual and scientific texts.
