JACQUES CALLOT, Nancy, Lorrain 1592 – 1635 Nancy. Portrait of Claude Deruet with his young son Henri. This original etching is for sale, priced £1500

JACQUES CALLOT
Nancy, Lorrain 1592 – 1635 Nancy

Callot went to Italy when he was only sixteen, where he trained and spent a decade as court etcher to Cosimo de’ Medici in Florence. After his patron’s death in 1621 Callot returned permanently to his native Nancy in the Duchy of Lorraine.

The artist Claude Deruet (1588-1660) with his son, ‘framed’ before a distant view of his mansion La Roumaine, inside the ramparts of Nancy. The etching is dedicated to Deruet by his “faithful friend”.

Deruet had also returned to Nancy from Italy, two years prior to Callot, in 1619, being appointed court painter and master of the revels in succession to Jacques Bellange, with whom he had originally trained.
Deruet and Callot collaborated on the 1627 festival and ballet in celebration of the visit of the Duchess of Chevreuse to the Ducal court (the Combat à la Barrière), which event Callot also recorded in a series of etchings.

Deruet, while in Rome, had received from the Pope the Knighthood of the Order of Christ (also known as the Order of Portugal) and Callot depicts him wearing the order’s cross.
On 5 March 1632 the Duke of Lorrain accorded Deruet the title of ‘gentleman’, presumably hence the coat-of-arms above his head. The portrait was probably made to celebrate this elevation.
Unusually, there is an extant preparatory pen drawing by Callot for the etching, now in the Louvre.

Deruet left Nancy in 1634 to work for Louis XIII and Richelieu in France.

MAXIME LALANNE, Bordeaux 1827 – 1886 Nogent-sur-Marne. Un site Hollandais d’après Nature or A Zaandam. This original etching is for sale, priced £95

 

MAXIME LALANNE
Bordeaux 1827 – 1886 Nogent-sur-Marne

Exclusively a graphic artist, Lalanne abandoned a career in the law in Bordeaux in 1852 and settled in Paris to become a fulltime graphic artist. He took up etching in 1862 at the suggestion of the Parisian print dealer and publisher Alfred Cadart when he founded the Société d’Aqua-Fortistes. Cadart was instrumental in the French etching revival of the period and would publish the majority of Lallane’s plates.

The Blue Fork
400 x 311 mm
Etching, sugar-lift and deep etch on steel, 2005.
Artist’s proof. Signed in pencil.
Printed in colours on wove paper.

£750

An early experimental colour print, using coloured oil-based printing inks, whereas the later colour prints are ‘inked’ with oil paint rather than printing ink.

The bare etched steel plate was ‘painted’ with the variously coloured inks - blue, yellow, violet and brown, and an impression taken on dampened paper. The plate was cleaned, inked with black and wiped as usual for an intaglio etching and then printed, in registration, over the still damp colour impression.
