Adolphe Lalauze A French 19th century etcher and illustrator, Adolphe Lalauze first gained employment as a recording controller and then studied art in Paris under Gaucherel. Early in his career he concentrated mostly upon original etching, with many of his works in this medium initially commissioned by Cadart in Paris.
Cadart, Delatre and the Societe des aqua-Fortistes: This original etching was published by France’s first important publisher of the etching revival. In 1862 Cadart founded the Societe des aqua-Fortistes. Until its demise in 1867, it was responsible for publishing some of the greatest French art from this important decade. Around 1870, Cadart (along with Luquet) reopened his publishing house and continued to commission original etchings from such masters as Jongkind, Bracquemond, Manet, Ribot and many others. Almost all of the fine etchings published by Cadart were printed by Auguste Delatre.
Adolphe Lalauze “Portrait of J. F. Millet”, etching was published in “Souvenirs De Barbizon” in the late 19th century in Paris. The plate signed work measure 4.50 by 3.50 inches approximate (plate mark) and in good condition.
