Original prints by the Impressionist-era artists Edgar Degas, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and James Tissot have just become available to collectors of fine art.
Online PR News – 22-March-2010 – – Original prints such as lithographs and etchings by Impressionist-era artists can be difficult to find. Most galleries don't have the experience to tell early impressions from later copies. So it is a boon to collectors when original prints become available. A cache of original lithographs and etchings by Edgar Degas, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and James Tissot have just become available to collectors of fine art through J D Smith Fine Art.
Edgar Degas was the acknowledged leader of the French Impressionist movement in 19th century art. He pioneered the use of empty space and everyday subjects viewed from unusual angles. The etching, titled La Sortie Du Bain, exemplifies this style, showing a rear view of a woman leaving the bath.
In the 1890’s, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec created hundreds of graphic works in a new, unique style. These include two lithographs from the 1890s that portray popular café concert performer Madame Abdala and well-known French statesmen George Clemenceau.
James Tissot was a French artist who became known early in his career for representations of Parisian life and society of his time. His wonderful paintings and graphic works often focus on the charms of women. Two original etchings created to illustrate the 1884 book Renee Mauperin capture this classic Tissot theme and style.
These original prints are now on view at J D Smith Fine Art. J D Smith Fine Art is an Internet-based art gallery specializing in fine art prints by well-known artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. J D Smith Fine Art is located outside Portland, Oregon in the community of Happy Valley.
