This sculpture adaptation replica, Freak with Beard Tail and Tacks Statue, from Bosch's Last Judgement painting appears in the middle panel of the triptych. It shows a rillo with beard, a freak with merely a head and legs. Bosch has extended his interpretation of a rillo by adding the tail of a reptile. He looks with a frightened expression at the mincer, where sinners are put through on Judgement Day. It is an astounding creation in 3D of Bosch's 2D figure from the Northern Renaissance.
Prominent surrealist and Dada artist Ernst developed the “frottage” technique to explore a subconscious form of representation, taking rubbings on paper against rough surfaces such a wooden floorboards, stone or even crusts of bread in an automotive manner, then developing the captured textural pattern into fuller, mostly subtly surreal figural, schematic or geographic images. The 23 collotypes in this portfolio were first executed in simple charcoal, the reproductions transferred to firmly fix the depth of detail in which Ernst discovered his objects. 1926; 23 collotypes in a portfolio; Signed and numbered 199/300; 19 1/2" x 12 5/8" (sheet, each); Provenance: Collection of Lydia Winston Malbin; By descent to present owner
