Description

Although celebrated as the leader of the creative revival of wood engraving in late 19th-century France, Lepère was also a painter who used pastel to make studies directly from nature. This study of a woman sewing is inscribed to the artist’s friend, Lotz-Brissonneau, who in 1905 authored the catalogue raisonné of Lepère’s graphic work.
