Paris park early 1900's
Gaston De Latenay Painter in oil and watercolour, lithographer,
etcher. He started his career in the 1880s as a painter of marine
subjects and landscapes. He exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français
and the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts between 1886
and 1893. Like many French artists of his day, Gaston de Latenay was
deeply influenced by Japanese art.
He became interested in lithography in the 1890s, one of his first
subjects being "Le Parc" in six colours for L'Estampe moderne.
The subtle modulations of colour in this print reveal a very sensitive
touch, which Gaston de Latenay developed over the coming decades in
colour etchings, published first by Georges Petit and after the liquidation
of Petit's stock by La Société de l'estampe moderne. Gaston de Latenay
was born in Toulouse. (Idbury Prints)
Not unlike the Maitre de L'Affiche series, L'Estampe
Moderne was a portfolio printed between 1897-98, published
by Imprimerie Champenois, Paris, contained 24 monthly portfolios,
with four original lithographs in each. Each commissioned only for
this series. Some of the contributing artists included Mucha, Rhead,
Meunier, Ibels, Steinlen, Willette and Grasset.
