An extraordinarily detailed design, tinged with archaism and deformity, combined with a very original visionary iconography, characterize the art of Carls Schwabe. He thus asserts himself as one of the most promising young creators of the idealistic tendency.
Emile Zola completes at the same time the cycle of rougon-macquart, monument of naturalist literature. The meeting seemed unlikely between these two personalities that everything seemed to oppose: vision of the world, aesthetics, generation.
However, the will of the publisher Ernest Flammarion, eager to publish an illustrated version of the dream, promotes an unexpected collaboration and full of hazards between the two men. The schwabe illustrations are based on a free interpretation of the Zolian text, which is close to a dreamlike and fantasy universe. This does not fail to surprise zola, who discovers in his boards "so many things that he did not remember to have put in the book". The twenty-six-year-old replied bravely that he "should have put them there!" In this illustration of the biblical theme, schwabe sketches the scene of any setting, thus focusing on the two figures of the virgin mary and the angel gabriel.
The drapes are of a complexity and an exemplary minutia, inspired by the Gothic sculptors and the primitive painters. We find the wings wrapped and enveloping that announce one of his most famous paintings, the death and the gravedigger, dating from 1900 and exposed to the musée d'orsay.
