DÜRER, Nuremburg 1471 – 1528.The Holy Family with three Hares. Woodcut, c1496-97. This woodcut is for sale, priced £2250

DÜRER
Nuremburg 1471 – 1528 Nuremburg

Dürer issued three major prints between 1495 and 1498 featuring the Madonna with an ‘animal’.

Two were engravings, The Virgin with the Dragonfly and The Madonna with the Monkey; and the third the woodcut of The Holy Family with three Hares, generally accepted as one of Dürer’s earliest ‘new’ style large scale woodcuts, influenced by his first visit to Italy c1494-5.

The Holy Family are separated from the landscape beyond, in a walled enclosure, which recalls the medieval hortus conclusus, the enclosed garden, symbolic of Mary’s virginity and associated with the Garden of Eden.

A white rabbit at the feet of the Virgin is another symbol of her purity. An unusual piece of iconography is the infant Christ on her knee, engrossed in reading a book.

MARCELLIN DESBOUTIN, Cérilly 1823 – 1902 Nice. Le Comte Ludovic Napoléon Lepic. Original drypoint, 1876. This drypoint is for sale, priced £585

MARCELLIN DESBOUTIN
Cérilly 1823 – 1902 Nice

Desboutin ‘etched’ the portraits of many of his friends who included the leading painters, printmakers and writers of the day, habitués of the ‘Impressionist’ cafés Guerbois and La Nouvelle Athènes. Desboutin worked only in drypoint, attacking the plate directly with the needle. He disliked etching with acid.

Desboutin was one of the 43 listed members of the newly constituted Société des Peintres-Graveurs Français for the 1891 exhibition.

£585

Lepic (1839-1889) had been a fellow student of Bazille, Monet and Renoir at Gleyre’s studio, and was a friend of Desboutin and Degas, a regular at the Café Guerbois.

He exhibited in the ‘Impressionist’ exhibitions of 1874 and 1876. Lepic was a member of the Société des Aquafortistes and had one etching published by the Society. He also contributed three etchings to L’Illustration Nouvelle in 1871, 1875 and 1876.

Cadart also published separately a series of etchings of dogs by the artist. A painter and an etcher, Lepic developed what he called eau-forte mobile, inking the plate creatively in the manner of monotype, which influenced Whistler in his own printing of his Venice etchings.
