About

Aquating over etching on hand made paper. The name of Luigini has a firm grasp on French artistic life. Ferdinand's father, Alexandre Luigini (1850-1906), was a leading composer of ballets and operas. His sister was a concert harpist and his nephew, Jean Tardieu (1903-1995) became a major poet. 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. Winter Road "Le Route en Hiver was commissioned by the Paris publisher, Estampe Moderne. During the 1920's Estampe Moderne published colour aquatints and etchings by such well known French artists as Ferdinand-Jean Luigini and Louis Icart. Edition: Number-3 of a limited edition of two hundred impressions.
