Bibi Lalouette - Original Etching by James Whistler - 1959

1859

About

Etching, 1859. Image Dimensions: 23 x 15 cm Signed on plate. Subject of this work by James Abbott McNeill Whistler is Bibi Lalouette, the son of the owner of the Paris, rue Dauphine, restaurant where the artist usually dined. The child is shown in profile, sitting on a bed and wearing a smock. Characterizing this delicate etching is an extraordinary combination of the formal elegance of the lines together with an intensely introspective atmosphere. Whistler experimented with etchings in 1858 in London and continued to do so, while also trying out other engraving techniques in Paris the following year. In the French capital, the artist concentrated on children as his subjects, as evidenced by this work. An American by birth, Whistler moved to Europe while still a child. He may be considered as one of the most interesting exponents of European art in the second half of the 19th Century. He was an important connecting link between the French and English art revolutions taking place at the time. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
