IDBURY PRINTS

PAUL BAUDIER (French / 1881-1962)

Paul Baudier was an etcher and engraver. Baudier was born in Paris, but as a child was sent to live with his grandparents in the country, in the village of Auxy, near Montargis. A love of the French countryside dominates Baudier's art. Baudier trained as an artisan wood engraver with his brother, the engraver Edmond Duplessis. As an original artist, Baudier was deeply influenced by Auguste Lepère. In WWI Baudier was badly wounded and sent to Switzerland to recover; there, he became friendly with Pierre-Eugène Vibert. Paul Baudier supplied original etchings to illustrate texts by Flaubert and Delarue-Mardrus, and also engraved the drawings of Auguste Rodin for L'Enfer and the in-texte drawings of André Derain for Le Satyricon.
