About

Original cliché-verre. (glass plate). Delteil, Melot 143. 6 5/8 x 8 (image and sheet). Edition 150, #71. Posthumous impression from the 1921 edition of 150 printed in Paris by Sagot-Le Garrec on photo-sensitive vellum paper, with their violet seal verso (Lugt 1766a). Signed in the plate in reverse. Barbizon on the outskirts of the Forest of Fontainbleau had already attracted regular visits from landscape painters wishing to paint in the open air (plein-air) directly from nature. J. F. Millet and Charles Jacque left Paris after the 1848 Revolution. Constant Dutilleux and Daubigny were regular guests at the village inn (as were Georges Sand, the Goncourts and other romantics). Adalbert Cuvelier visited annually bringing his photography students from Arras. In 1859 his son Eugène married the inn-keeper’s daughter and settled in Barbizon. Eugène Cuvelier showed the cliché-verre process to Millet, Rousseau and Daubigny. In 1853, Camille Corot produced the first "drawing on glass photographic". The subject was the woodcutter Rembrandt. He printed their glass plates, which remained in his possession. Few early impressions (printed on thin salted or albumin paper) have survived. The Cuvelier collection of cliché-verres was re-printed in small editions of 10-15 prints in 1911 when it was acquired by Bouasse-Lebel. were subsequently printed in an edition of 150 before chipping the corners of the glass plates as cancellation and giving them to museum collections. The Le Garrec impressions are on gelatine paper and retain the photographically printed scratches and fingerprints in the borders and the ‘black’ edge of the glass plate.
