Lepic, Le Président Arbod

Le Président Arbod

Etching and drypoint, 1875, Bibliothèque National Inventaire 99, 240 x 159 mm. A very fine impression, with burr and plate tone, on laid japan paper with good margins, signed in blue pencil. Arbod clearly looks like a president, but president of what, we are not vouchsafed to know. The print is, however, a sympathetic and rather moving portrait of an elderly man at his desk, the product of a supposed “amateur” printmaker who was actually a major influence on printmaking in France in the later nineteenth century. Three of his monoprints hang in the current show of Degas at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, if memory serves, the only prints not by Degas in that spectacular show.
