Le Verger (The Orchard)

Félix-Joseph-Auguste Bracquemond (French, 1833–1914)

An early admirer of Japanese prints and a highly influential printmaker in his own right, Félix Bracquemond was a friend and advisor on printmaking techniques to the Impressionist painters, and his etchings were included in the first Impressionist exhibition of 1863. Bracquemond published this lithograph in 1894, reprising a variant of the subject he had created in glazed earthenware—first for the studio of the ceramicist Théodore Deck and later adapted for Haviland and Company in 1875–76. This print was displayed in an exhibition of his work held at the Société National des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1907.
