Period print / engraving by Jean Emile LABOUREUR - “Jeunes filles sur le port” - Year 1920 - on arches vellum paper

Stamp of the artist - Signed and numbered 27/65

This plate (17.3 x 15.1 cm - only the drawing) is available in a black wooden frame (30 x 30 cm) giving the work a touch of art deco.

Jean-Émile Laboureur (1877-1943) exhibits in Paris from 1911 and settles there in 1912. He then uses less etched wood and prefers the aqua-fortis. Its style is similar to Cubism around 1912-1913. His role is considered to be "considerable in the great movement of modern art.” Mobilised in 1914, he still continues to create, he composed three suites of engravings on the theme of war, and draws on his experiences for other later works.

Laboureur experimented the chisel technique for the illustration of L’Appartement des jeunes filles of Roger Allard in 1919. This is the first of a long series of sixty-six illustrated books. He also collaborated on magazines like the Gazette du Bon Ton, La Revue Musicale. In his Parisian studio, Laboureur teaches the art of engraving to students like Marie Laurencin and André Dunoyer de Segonzac.

    Il était mentionné dans l'annonce : "suiveur de" et la date de la peinture, 1976. Tout était donc clair et précis. Ce n'était pas l'original de 1850 dont le tableau se trouve au Louvre ! Votre commentaire, 3 mois après la vente, n'est pas approprié. Vous n'avez jamais déposé une demande de réclamation auprès de Catawiki et vous ne m'avez jamais écrit. Enfin, vous terminez par une injure, ce qui n'est pas acceptable.
