    Conrad Le piège malais « Kaliani » Illustration (Dupuis, 1998). Réalisé à l'encre de Chine avec rehauts de gouache blanche, ce dessin est issu de la série Le piège Malais, éditée à partir de 1990 par chez « Aire Libre ». Il représente Kaliani, la compagne d'Ernest, un français égaré en Inde et bientôt en proie à ce sentiment de violence meurtrière dont l'écrivain Stefan Zweig a rendu compte dans sa nouvelle de 1922, Amok ou le Fou de Malaisie. L'ambiance sombre et mystique de ce dessin de 29 x 32,5 cm rend compte de l'atmosphère de ce récit initiatique à fin tragique. Très bon état.
    Conrad Le piège malais "Kaliani" Illustration art (Dupuis, 1998). Made in ink with highlights in white gouache, this drawing comes from the series Le piège Malais, published from 1990 by "Aire Libre". It shows Kaliani, the companion of Ernest, a Frenchman lost in India who soon falls prey to that sense of deadly violence that the writer Stefan Zweig reported in his 1922 short story, "Amok ou le Fou de Malaisie". The dark and mystical mood of this drawing reflects the atmosphere of this tale of initiation with a tragic ending. Image area measures 9" x 8.75". In Excellent condition.
