Félix Bracquemond (1833-1914) is an integral figure in the history of the nineteenth century printmaking, and along with Charles Meryon and Félix Buhot is regarded as one of the fathers of the etching revival movement in France.  Associated with many movements and a member of none, Bracquemond’s name can be connected with Impressionism, Realism and Japonism, the last of which he was instrumental in initiating.  He left behind over 900 etchings, diverse in nature, but mostly all rich for their subjects, technical riches or compositional strengths.
