Emanuel von Baeyer

Prints and Drawings of Four Centuries

This catalogue proceeds chronologically from rare and important examples of School of Fontainebleau prints after Primaticcio and Luca Penni to a late nineteenth-century zincography by Emile Bernard, which has on the verso a letter by the artist to Alfred Jarry. Among the numerous highlights namely several prints in proof impressions and early states such as Marco Ricci’s Capriccio with classical Ruins, a Fountain and a Circular Temple, is a fine group of drawings and watercolours, including a highly-finished watercolour drawing of Summer by the French Rococo artist Jean-Baptiste Hüet and a sumptuous watercolour representation of the Bedchamber of Queen Luise in the Palais Royal by Friedrich Wilhelm Klose of around 1830.
