Henri Boutet was known as "le Petit Maître au corset", "the little master of the corset". Images of fetching Parisiennes in a state of partial undress were Boutet's speciality, in lithographs, drypoints, etchings, and in albums of hand-coloured engraved plates. (Idbury Prints)
"Boutet's work epitomizes the genre "La Parisienne". From simple shop girls to sophisticated ladies, Boutet captured their common qualities of coquettishness and femininity...
As he became more successful, Boutet changed the direction of his work to appeal to a broader market. He began to publish his own work using a technique called the "eau-fort synthétique" which simulated the more expensive etching but was less expensive to create.
He also applied his illustrative genius to commercial graphics such as magazines, menus and almanacs that are highly collectable today. Boutet's images sensitively but candidly capture the charm and frivolities of Paris during La Belle Epoque" (georginakelman.com)
