ADOLPHE BEAUFRERE (French / 1876-1960)

Adolphe Beaufrère studied painting under Gustave Moreau at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. Beaufrère took up printmaking in 1908, and subsequently created around four hundred etchings, wood engravings, vernis mous, aquatints, engravings, and drypoints. Adolphe Beaufrère's earliest etchings were of Breton figures and landscapes; then he turned to North African scenes; then to scenes of WWI and finally to religious and Biblical subjects. It is his early landscapes that are most highly prized; they have much in common with the art of Adolphe Beaufrère's friend Jean Frelaut. See: D. Morane, Catalogue Raisonné de l'Oeuvre Gravé d'Adolphe Beaufrère, 1981.
