Auguste Louis Lepère
'Hyde Park' original woodcut engraving signed by Auguste Louis Lepère




The present artwork is an excellent example of the woodcut engravings of Auguste-Louis Lepère (1849 - 1918). He was the son of the sculptor Francois Lepère, and is considered a leader in the creative revival of wood engraving in Europe. He apprenticed at the age of thirteen to the English wood engraver Joseph Burn Smeeton who established his studio in Paris. This may have had some bearing on the number of images he produced of English subjects - such as the present example: This print depicts a protest at Hyde Park in London. It probably shows the efforts in 1866 or 1867 of the Reform League, which held protests in Hyde Park for reforms in voting rights. In the image, Lepère presents an expansive view of the park, filled with figures on the ground, on horseback, and holding picket signs. In the distance though a smoky atmosphere is the skyline of London. This reflects much of the interest he would have later in his career: Between 1889 and 1901, his favorite subjects were the urban scenes around contemporary Paris—the bridges, cathedrals and boulevards. 12.25 x 18 inches, artwork 16.38 x 20.75 inches, frame Signed in the image, lower left Inscribed "A.B.D.E." in the image, lower right Signed in pencil "A. Lepère" lower right Framed to conservation standards using 100 percent rag matting and housed in a wooden moulding
