Belle Epoque Beauties

Currently in the gallery: a wonderful collection of elegant and sophisticated color etchings and aquatints by Manuel Robbe. Robbe (1872-1936), a celebrated and award-winning artist, was an accomplished engraver specializing in the sugar-lift aquatint process and became a leader of the color etching movement. Some of his favorite subjects were the bourgeois modern women of the Belle Epoque. His first works were printed by Delâtre, however he soon became a skilled printer using aquatint on a zinc plate. His style is rich using velvety blacks, creamy whites and unusual bronzes and browns. Oh la la! There are several images below or you may check out our full selection by clicking here.
