French printmaker and designer Félix Bracquemond (1833–1914) produced more than 800 etchings during a prolific career that spanned the late 19th century. Though celebrated from the outset of his career as a skilled etcher, Bracquemond enthusiastically championed the etching revival in France, prominently leading the charge toward redefining etching as a highly original art form. Despite his status while living as a luminary within the Paris Salon and avant-garde artistic circles associated with Impressionisme and Japonisme Bracquemond’s work is little known today. The exhibition is on view through October 4, 2015.
