Paul César Helleu
Portrait of Whistler with the Monacle.

1897

About

Portrait of Whistler with the Monacle. 1897. Drypoint. 13 3/4 x 10 1/4 (sheet 16 3/4 x 11 5/8). A carefully wiped impression with plate tone, from the cancelled plate (there were only 28 impressions before the plate was cancelled), printed on cream laid paper. A delightful portrait of Helleu's colleague and friend, Whistler. Housed in a 24 x 20-inch archival mat suitable for framing. Helleu had a classical education in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts from 1870 under Jean-Léon Gérôme. However, in his maturity he began to paint en plein-air in an Impressionist style and Degas invited him to exhibit at the Impressionist exhibition of 1886. In this year James Tissot, appointed Helleu his artistic successor, giving him the diamond he had used for his drypoints. Helleu made a considerable reputation producing portraits of fashionable figures in this medium. His works in both drypoint and oil show the influence of Japanese prints in their unusual angles and perspectives.
