JEAN-EMILE LABOUREUR (French / 1877-1943)

Jean-Émile Laboureur was born in Nantes. Laboureur made his first lithographs under the watchful eye of Toulouse-Lautrec in 1897, and the influence of Toulouse-Lautrec is evident in his early work. Laboureur was also taught by Auguste Lepère. Laboureur founded the group Les Peintres-Graveurs Indépendants. His main output as a printmaker consists of etchings, copper engravings, and wood engravings. Jean-Émile Laboureur was the first printmaker to be strongly influenced by Cubism. There were major retrospectives of his work in 1991 and 1996, both in Nantes.
