This sale is for an engraving by the famous artist and etcher, Charles Jacque. Depicting a mother and Child at the dinner table and the child placed on her knee. Note the specially made child’s chair, The measurements of the etching are 10cm x 8cm in a gilt frame that measures 28 x 23 cm. there is a title bottom right but it has faded. Charles has his signature op left within the engraving. The engraving could be 1860s but was framed between 1877-1883. This was framed in London by *A.W. Johnson, 58 Westbourne Grove, Bayswater, London 1877-1883 There are a few marks around the inner white frame that are commensurate with age. Charles Emile Jacque was one of the earliest members of the Barbizon School, working in the area from about 1841 and being accredited with persuading his friend Millet to move to the town of Barbizon in 1849. Like his friends, Daubigny, Millet, and Rousseau, Charles Jacque was inspired by the rural landscapes and peasant life, particularly around the area of the forest of Fontainbleau. Although Charles Jacque’s natural medium was etching or engraving, rather than painting, the empathy which he showed towards the depiction of natural light in landscape and simple peasant life was the very essence of the Barbizon ideal. Trained initially as an engraver of maps, Charles Jacque only began to follow his calling as an artist in 1841. He exhibited original etchings at the Paris Salon from the early 1840’s and it was through these works, rather than his paintings, that he first achieved public recognition. By the year 1848 Charles Jacque had created over 300 etchings, impressions of many of which are now very rare. After this date he all but abandoned etching until 1864, when he began afresh; however, all but a few of his later etchings are worked on a much larger scale and with a comparatively coarse line. Charles Jacque’s small early plates from the 1840’s display a freshness and vitality which has always appealed to true connoisseurs of etchings Charles-Émile Jacque BARBIZON School c1880 , Original Victorian Engraving
