La Parisienne
1872-1936, French

A beautiful subtly colored etching and aquatint, image size 19 1/4 x 13 5/8 inches, 1907, pencil signed in the lower left corner of the image. One of the leading French artists of the ‘Belle Epoch,’ Robbe studied at the Academie Julien and the Ecole des Beaux Artes, becoming a master of the aquatint medium. He developed much of his own aquatint techniques, which enabled him to create his uniquely painterly, richly colored images. Many of Robbe's compositions capture intimate personal moments, such as this image of a woman adjusting her hat in a mirror before going out.
