About this artwork

Félix Bracquemond is best known for his role in the Etching Revival, for founding the Société des Aquafortistes in 1862, and for his discovery and promulgation of prints by the Japanese artists Hokusai and Hiroshige. This sheet of studies relates to an 1882 etching of the same title. The drawing is shown in the artist’s own stylishly designed, decorative brocade mat and Japanese lacquer-like red painted frame.
