Les Ruines du Chateau de Crémieux

Other Images:

Etching, roulette and « procédé à la cravate », 1850, 120 x 195 mm., Delteil 77 i/ii. Exceedingly fine impression on chine-appliqué with large margins. The scene is a bit unusual for Daubigny: the ruins are seen in a rocky terrain with few trees, storm clouds gather overhead, and a horseman, followed by a dog, gallops along a rude road in the general direction of the castle. The "procédé à la cravate" was a technique invented by Daubigny which involved pressing his silk tie onto the etching ground and rubbing it, producing a fine-grained texture that might be called silk-tie aquatint. The Château de Crémieux is in the Izère region east of Lyons.

Marquis Ph. de Chennevières (Lugt 2072 and 2073). It is most unusual to find this stamp on a print, as Chennevières was noted for his collection of drawings, so vast and important that Lugt accords over two pages to the collector and his collection. Charles Philippe, Marquis de Chennevières-Pointel (1820-1899) was a scholar and historian of art, Director of the Beaux-Arts and author of a variety of art studies as well as of his own Souvenirs which contained valuable information and opinions on his contemporaries. His drawing collection contained sheets by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Raphael, Goltzius and Rubens, but he was above all a patriot and protagonist of French art. He sold privately, and at public auction, some of his greatest drawings (but refused an offer from a German museum), but kept intact his collection of drawings by French artists, which was sold only after his death. There is no mention in Lugt of any prints, but the stamp on this one is unmistakable.
