BOETIUS ADAMS BOLSWERT
Bolsward 1580–1633 Antwerp

A leading Dutch Mannerist painter, Bloemaert was particularly influential through his drawings.

He made some 1500 drawings, a considerable number of which were specifically produced to be engraved for his Drawing Book of figures, and for a number of landscape series.

Aside from his son, Bloemaert’s principle engraver was Boetius Bolswert (elder brother of Schelte à Bolswert), who engraved pastorals and series of landscapes, amongst others.

JEAN BAPTISTE LE PRINCE, Metz 1734 – 1781 Lagny sur Marne. L’Hiver. Etching, 1768. This original print is for sale, price £175

JEAN BAPTISTE LE PRINCE
Metz 1734 – 1781 Lagny sur Marne

Le Prince moved from his native Lorraine to Paris about 1750, where he studied with François Boucher.

From 1757 to 1762 he travelled extensively in Russia. As well as being employed by Catherine the Great in St Petersburg, he produced many drawings of the Russian countryside and daily life.

On his return to France they formed the basis of his paintings and etchings, in which he essentially created a new kind of genre subject.

DAVID CHARLES READ, Boldre, near Lymington 1790 – 1851 Kensington. River Landscape. Original drypoint, c1830. This original print is for sale, price £125

DAVID CHARLES READ
Boldre, near Lymington 1790 – 1851 Kensington

Read went to London as a youth and trained as an engraver with John Scott. Poor in health he returned to the country and in 1820 settled in Salisbury, where he got to know Constable.

Read lived in the Cathedral close, working as a drawing master. He took up etching and, a novelty at that date, drypoint, and from 1826-1844 produced 237 plates, mainly of landscapes; all of which he catalogued.

Read acquired his own press within a few years and issued his own plates in series, in small editions, though without huge success. In 1845, before making a trip to Italy for his health, Read destroyed 63 of his etching plates and after his death six years later, his family destroyed the rest.

ADOLPHE APPIAN, Lyon 1818 – 1898 Lyon. Environs de Rix (Ain). Original etching, 1864. . This original print is for sale, price £120

ADOLPHE APPIAN
Lyon 1818 – 1898 Lyon

Adolphe Appian (born Jacques Barthélémy) is one of the minor masters of French 19th century etching, unjustly neglected.

He trained and spent most of his life in Lyon and the surrounding area, rather than being drawn to Paris (though Cadart, in Paris was his agent and published many of his etchings).

Lyon attracted artists and Corot and Daubigny both made painting trips in the area. Appian met them in the early 1850’s, probably in 1852, just when Appian was devoting himself to art. He would work with them on painting visits to Fontainebleau in 1855 and 1856. Perhaps it was the example of Daubigny that inspired Appian to take up etching in 1853.

Hamerton commented ...

“I selected it …for its fine sentiment … it has great freedom, and there is no superfluous work”.

It is a work typically imbued both with light and with a certain twilight air of poetic melancholy.

FERDINAND SCHMUTZER, Vienna 1870 – 1928 Vienna. Antwerp Cathedral. Original etching and soft-ground c1910. This original print is for sale, price £200

FERDINAND SCHMUTZER
Vienna 1870 – 1928 Vienna

Schmutzer, from an immediate family of sculptors, initially trained as a sculptor, then as a painter in Vienna.

It was a study trip to the Netherlands, 1894-96, and the impact of Rembrandt, that inspired him to take up etching (his great grandfather had been an engraver) and he would become a leading etcher in Vienna. He also had an early interest in photography.

Appointed Director of the Vienna Academy 1908, his home, the Villa Schmutzer, in Stenwartestrasse, was a centre of the intellectual, literary, musical and artistic life of Vienna, he and his wife entertained such celebrities as Einstein, Freud, Richard Strass, Pablo Casals, Josef Joachim, among others. He etched their portraits, sometimes on an innovatory large scale. He also made etchings of landscapes and cityscapes.
