JULES JACQUEMART (French / 1837-1880)

Jules Jacquemart was, until his early death, regarded as the foremost etcher of objets d'art. In the 1860s he was commissioned by the Louvre to produced 60 etchings of the French crown jewels. Jules Jacquemart contributed many etchings to the Gazette des Beaux-Arts, including interpretative etchings of paintings by others; elsewhere on this site we have etchings by Jacquemart after Rembrandt, Fyt, Potter, Ostade and others; to view these, please enter Jacquemart in Simple Search. Jacquemart also published original etchings. On the basis of his 1875 etching Chez Berne-Bellecour, Jacquemart was drawn to Impressionism; it was executed only the year after the First Impressionist Exhibition, and was we believe the first print published by the Gazette des Beaux-Arts to be described as an "impression". Sadly Jacquemart died in 1880, at the age of only 43, so that his various etched "impressions" and "effets" have been largely overlooked, and he remains best-known for his interpretative works and his skill at rendering objets d'art. He was the son of the collector A. Jacquemart.
