Illustrations for “Le Fleuve”1874
Édouard Manet, French, (1832–1883)
Object Type: prints
Medium and Support: Etching on leaves in bound volume
Series: from Manet (Edmond Bazire)
Edition: Eight illustrations from Edmond Bazire’s one-volume Manet (Paris: A. Quantin, 1884), edition of 100, signed by Manet and Cros., which includes Emile Zola’s Edouard Manet, étude biographique et critique (1867) and Charles Cros’s Le Fleuve. Per Fisher (Manet, 1985, p. 23): “The prints in this volume were extra-illustrated, or bound in. The book was owned at one time by Avery who acquired many of his rarest Manets from George A. Lucas (1824–1909). Lucas was assisted by the major collector of Manet, Henri Guérard (1846–1897) whose association with Manet began in the 1870s. Guérard also printed editions from the plates before Manet's death & shortly afterward. Major American holdings—Avery & Lucas—derive essentially from Guérard.”
