About the Item

This artwork "Cheveaux Tirant une Peniche (Horses pulling a Barge)" c.1920 is an original color etching with aquatint on Wove paper by French artist Ferdinand Jean Luigini, 1870-1943. It is hand signed and numbered 285 in pencil by the artist. The image (plate mark) size is 17.75 x 13 inches, sheet size is 23.85 x 17.85 inches. It is in excellent condition, it has apparently never been framed. About the artist: Ferdinand-Jean Luigini studied art in Paris under Emile Verhaeren. He began exhibiting his landscapes and architectural renderings in Paris in 1892 with the Salon des Artistes Francais*. Within several years his art was regularly shown in London, Brussels, Amsterdam and New York. Ferdinand-Jean Luigini was equally famous for both his large colour aquatints* and for his watercolours. One contemporary scholar wrote, "Ferdinand Luigini, a brilliant watercolour artist, succeeds in lending his etchings the fascination of glowing pictures. The deep rich tones are obtained by very careful biting with the etching knife. His style varies with his subject. Some of his plates ... show the broad sweep of the painter's brush bent upon rendering the atmosphere of large spaces. ... His most successful plates portray the autumnal aspects of Flemish landscape. * These words clearly apply to this large, beautiful aquatint and etching. (F. L. Leipnik, A History of French Etching from the Sixteenth Century to the Present Day, London, John Lane, 1924, p. 188). The artistry of the original aquatint and etching printed in colours reached its most creative era in the 1920's decade. Fine artists throughout Europe and America produced outstanding works in this demanding medium, however, etchers in Austria and France led the way. Famous Austrian artists of the period included Luigi Kasimir, Max Pollack and Hans Figura. Some of the many great French artists were Raffaelli, Manuel Robbe, Helleu, Armand Coussens, Gustave Henri Marchetti and Ferdinand-Jean Luigini.

  • La Poursuite by Orovida Pissarro - Animal etching
    By Orovida Pissarro
    Located in London, GB
    La Poursuite by Orovida Pissarro (1893-1968) Etching with aquatint 17.2 x 12.5 cm (6 ³/₄ x 4 ⁷/₈ inches) Signed and dated lower right Orovida 1917 Inscribed lower left Final State Trial proof no. 1 Artist biography Orovida Camille Pissarro, Lucien and Esther Pissarro’s only child, was the first woman in the Pissarro family as well as the first of her generation to become an artist. Born in Epping, England in 1893, she lived and worked predominantly in London where she became a prominent member of several British arts clubs and societies. She first learned to paint in the Impressionist style of her father, but after a brief period of formal study with Walter Sickert in 1913 she renounced formal art schooling. Throughout her career, Orovida always remained outside of any mainstream British art movements. Much to Lucien's disappointment she soon turned away from naturalistic painting and developed her own unusual style combining elements of Japanese, Chinese, Persian and Indian art. Her rejection of Impressionism, which for the Pissarro family had become a way of life, together with the simultaneous decision to drop her famous last name and simply use Orovida as a ‘nom de peintre’, reflected a deep desire for independence and distance from the weight of the family legacy. Orovida's most distinctive and notable works were produced from the period of 1919 to 1939 using her own homemade egg tempera applied in thin, delicate washes to silk, linen or paper and sometimes embellished with brocade borders. These elegant and richly decorative works generally depict Eastern, Asian and African subjects, such as Mongolian horse...
