Did You Know?

In addition to creating prints after Eva Gonzalès’s paintings to share her work more widely after her death, Henri Guérard worked to arrange a major exhibition of her work in 1885.

Description

Although Henri Guérard was best known as a printer for the Impressionists, he was an accomplished original printmaker and experimented avidly with the materials and techniques of etching. This print is one of several that reinterpreted paintings by his wife, Eva Gonzalès, a painter who died at a young age in childbirth. In this print, Guérard etched a portrait that Gonzalès created of her sister, Jeanne, also an artist, working at an easel.
