"Etching is fashionable", 1840-1910

03.04.2020 - 28.06.2020

In April 1862, in an article published in the Revue Anecdotique, Charles Baudelaire remarked: “It would seem etchings are becoming fashionable”. Supplanted by lithography and the use of the burin from the 1790s onwards, before the rise of photography in the 1840s, the technique – a favourite of Rembrandt’s – garnered the interest of the most innovative artists of the time. From the Barbizon school to late 19th-century symbolists, “printmaker-painters” brought new life to this century-old technique and made it a preferred medium to voice their personalities. This trend spread across Europe at a time that saw the triumph of modernism, represented by such figures as Félix Bracquemond, Edgar Degas, Antonio Fontanesi, Francis Seymour Haden, Édouard Manet, Charles Meryon or James McNeill Whistler. A momentous time in the history of printmaking, which the MAH invites visitors to discover through a selection of exceptional prints, many of which are one of a kind, selected from the museum’s own collections.
