EDITORS COMMENTS
is a captivating and whimsical illustration by Albert Robida, depicting soldiers represented as fish. This unique portrayal draws inspiration from Careme's lean meal, where some fish only have the aretes, emphasizing their slender and youthful appearance. The artwork was created for an episode of the Fourth Livre by Francois Rabelais in the early 20th century. Robida's artistic prowess shines through in this piece, showcasing his mastery of detail and imagination. Each fish soldier is meticulously crafted with intricate scales and expressive features, bringing them to life on the page. The fantastical creatures depicted add an element of mystery and intrigue to the composition. The illustration transports viewers back to the 16th century, immersing them in a world where mythical beasts roam alongside humans. It captures the essence of Rabelais' literary genius while also highlighting Robida's ability to translate words into visual art. This print serves as a testament to both artists' contributions to French literature and art history. It reminds us of the power that creativity holds in capturing our imaginations and transporting us to different realms. Overall, "The Army of Quaresmeprenant" is a delightful fusion of fantasy and reality that invites viewers on a journey through time and space.
