Auguste-Louis Lepere, French, 1849-1918, "Au Coin du Pont-aux-Doubles". This is a very rare nocturnal scene by French artist Auguste- Louis Lepere. Etching, image size is 4 1/4 x 3 7/8 inches, 1893, cat: LB-71, pencil signed and numbered "16". Auguste-Louis Lepere was one of the leading French printmakers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He began studying printmaking at the age of 13 with Joseph Burn Smeeton in Paris and quickly made a name for himself with his innovative style and technically brilliant etchings and wood engravings. This etching is exquisitely rendered with the soft light from the street lamp and the moon illuminating the scene, casting deep shadows in the foreground with the city gently silhouetted in the background. A very rich impression printed on a laid type paper with ample margins.
