Rental » Tableau des Grands Magasins

Jean Ëmile Laboureur (1877 - 1943)

Collection of eleven burin engravings belonging to a suite of twelve illustrations for “Tableau des Grands Magasins” from J. Valmy-Basse. It was edited by “La Nouvelle Revue Française in 1924/1925. In order to continue his art during the war years Laboureur was forced to try the portable medium of engraving, which required only a copper plate, a burin and a burnisher, reason why he became rapidly skilled in controlling the burin and which became the medium he preferred for the rest of his life. These engravings are a magnificent proof of it. The series, signed by the artist and numbered K, belong to the edition of 15 engravings printed on Japanese imperial paper, numbered from F to T. The total edition was of 335 copies. All works are framed.
