Portrait of Edouard Manet (full-length)

ca. 1862
19th century

Henri Charles Guérard, French, (1846–1897)

Object Type: print
Medium and Support: Etching on papier japonais (1949.D1.1.17a) and papier vergé (1949.D1.1.17b) in bound volume
Series: from Manet (Edmond Bazire)
Edition: Two illustrations from Edmond Bazire’s one-volume Manet (Paris: A. Quantin, 1884), 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.”
Provenance / Collectors' Marks: Samuel Putnam Avery (Lugt 41)
Bibliography: For information on the portraits see Heinrich Schwarz, “Two Unknown Portraits of Manet,” Gazette des Beaux-Arts 53 (April 1959).
