Product description

1988 marked the one hundredth anniversary of Louis Icart's birth. There were no parades of large celebrations, but Louis and his wife, Fanny, would certainly have been grateful at the great resurgence of interest in his artwork. This newly expanded book now includes over 510 different etchings, painstakingly acquired and photographed. Particular attention has been given to the early years (1911-1924), when Icart was a relatively unknown artist and his edition sizes were small. With few exceptions, the book contains large, full color illustrations which give the reader a true representation of the full-size etchings. The authors clarify some of the existing confusion surrounding Icart's work, explaining the variations in his signature, the use of the "Windmill" seal and other seals, and the myriad of copyright notations found on his etchings. The etchings have been carefully measured and dated. This is a great addition to the Icart legacy.
