Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1899, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding editor to bradel half dark green calico, smooth back, as part of black morocco, gilt small iron and double gold in net queue.Douze numbers from January to December 1899. conservées.Chaque number Covers Edition is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Paul Fort, Henri Ghéon, André Gide, Francis Jammes, René Boylesve, etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a monthly magazine owned by the first wave of little magazines Symbolists. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular contributors, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), the Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. The Hermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time as the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] which deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his state of mind symbolist, employees are more interested in poetry than novel. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, says that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddles the fin de siècle aestheticism and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1899. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Paul Fort, Henri Ghéon, André Gide, Francis Jammes, René Boylesve, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

        Manuscript Journal - Swiss Mountaineering

      Switzerland 1899 - Switzerland, 5-27 August, 1899. Manuscript fair journal recording a three week alpine adventure of mountain climbing, trekking, and exploring remote villages in the Pennine Alps, which features one ascent made to the summit of the Sasseneire with British reverend and mountaineer James Outram whom is best known for his pioneering ascents in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Also with mention of the fatal climbing expedition of Owen Glynne Jones which took place only days after the writer was climbing in the same mountain range in Valais. 8vo. 122 pages. Original black morocco binding and marbled endpapers, recent spine. Wear to extremities of boards, otherwise in very good condition, a pleasing and entertaining volume. A splendidly descriptive mountaineer's account of his adventures and explorations in the Pennine Alps and Saas Valley of the Canton of Valais, Switzerland, through majestic passes and quaint villages seldom visited by foreigners, and reaching at least two summits. The mountaineer is unidentified, although he is from England, possibly a reverend like Outram, and certainly a skilled writer. Text reveals that he had made a journey to Lake Geneva in 1897 and to Moutier in 1896. Some of the places visited include Évolène, Valais, Rhone Valley, Brig, Martigny, St. Maurice, Montreux, Glion, Vevey, Lausanne, Neuchâtel, Bâle, Saint Bernard (Mont Blanc), Trient, Visp, Sasseneire (mountain of the Swiss Pennine Alps), Villeneuve, Lake Geneva, Chillon, and Arolla, where he observes the nuances of local custom including dress and festivities. Of particular interest is the detailed account of summiting the Sasseneire with Reverend James Outram (1864-1925), a British clergyman, renowned mountaineer who made the first ascents of the Canadian Rockies. [Outram began climbing in the Swiss Alps, and went to Canada in 1900 with his brother, also a reverend, William Outram, only shortly after this journal was penned.] Whilst reflecting on his climb with Outram on the 19th of August 1899, amidst the peaks of Valais, he reflects on the fatal mountain climbing accident of famous Welsh mountaineer Owen Glynne Jones, who died on the 28th of August on the Ferpècle arête of the Dent Blanche. [Jones' guides Elias Furrer, Clemenz Zurbriggen and Jean Vuignier were also killed. The four men fell about 1,650 feet (500 m). Mr. F. W. Hill was the party's only survivor.] The diary begins with the adventurer's departure from London 5 August 1899, and provides captivating detail of the journey from urban centers, to vast open regions, first through the Italian Alps, then through the Lepontine Alps, where in the valley of the Wasenhorn crews were busy excavating for railway construction in the Simplon Pass. By 12 August the writer is climbing and trekking in the Saas Valley. He includes pleasing descriptions of the villages Saas-Gund, Saas-Fee and others, the Rossbodenhorn and a "little cabaret on the very edge of the rocky cliff" to which the party climbed up, interesting historical events, ruins, magnificent scenes, and so forth. Ending rather abruptly on 27 August, his final entry is made at Bâle. Excerpts from the manuscript: August 9. "Brig the terminus of the Jura-Simplon Railway at present is a busy little town of 1200 inhabitants situated on the Rhone.

        The Grand of Tour of Europe by Edith Sybil Douglas (Whitehouse), Circa 1898, (Two Ablums of Mounted Photographs, oblong Vellum Folios)

      Edith Sybil Douglas (Whitehouse), 1899 1900 s. Hardcover. Very Good. A record of a turn of the century Grand Tour of Europe, compiled by Ms. Edith Sybil Douglas circa 1899 - 1900s. 2 oblong folios in handsome vellum elaborately decorated in gilt, initialed E.S.D. in gold on front covers. Approximately 200 mounted photographs of European works of art and architecture. Douglas's book plate inside covers. Edges red. Edith Sybil Douglas (1881 - 1950) came from a wealthy New York family. Her parents were William Proctor Douglas (who owned 300 acres in Little Neck Bay, Long Island) and Adelaide Louisa Townsend Douglas. William Douglas "leased their home to the Metropolitan Museum of Art while the Vaux-Mould building was under construction." (Jean Strouse, Morgan: American Financier, Penguin, 2012). Adelaide's family owned the auction house Townsend & Montant. The Douglas's were members of the Union, Racquet, Tuxedo and New York Yacht clubs. According to Strouse, the married Adelaide Douglas had an affair with J. Pierpont Morgan (subject to much rumor and innuendo) and accompanied him on his European collecting tours. Morgan installed her in the Vendome in the 1900s in a special suite redecorated for her every spring. Morgan paid for a number of eighteenth century antiques, paintings and furniture between 1904-1908 for Adelaide. Additionally, Strouse states that Morgan met with both Adelaide and her daughter Sybil in 1899 in London. Morgan stayed on with Adelaide and Sybil in Europe while his wife returned to America. Presumably, these albums were compiled by Sybil during this tour with J.P. Morgan. Sybil accompanied her mother in France and throughout Europe during the 1900s with Morgan's patronage. (Morgan set up a trust fund for Sybil of $120,000 in 1897, as well as a $500,000 trust for Adelaide). Edith Sybil Douglas married William Fitzhugh Whitehouse (Yale, 1899) of Newport, R. I. in 1914. The Whitehouse family was a noted political family in Rhode Island. An interesting collection relating to New York's Gilded era. This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US.

        Preamble and By-Laws of Lodge No. 423 United Mine Workers of America. 1899

      Roberts & Sons, Printers, Birmingham 1899 - Possibly the earliest printed vestige of the United Mine Workers in Alabama. The UMWA has a rather complicated history in the deep south; the union suffered a powerful defeat, failing to win formal recognition among mine operators in its founding year (1890), and retreated from the region for most of the following decade. With the rising economic tide of 1897 the UMWA was able to re-establish itself; Alabama was established as the UMWA's District 20 in May of 1898 and Birmingham Local 423 was established a few months later. This organizational leaflet includes the Union's Preamble, callling for an eight hour day and safer working conditions, along with the Local's by-laws, stating qualifications for membership thus: ".No person shall be admitted to membership or be initiated into the mysteries of the Order of the Lodge unless he be a male 12 years of age, of good moral character, and believes in a Supreme Being, the Creator and Preserver of the universe." Interestingly, no racial restrictions are mentioned in the by-laws, though by 1901 strict segregation would become a matter of practice for Alabama miners. Rare; OCLC gives no locations, nor do we locate any example of any Alabama-printed UMWA tracts preceding this one (the nearest competitor being a 1900 printing of the by-laws of UMWA District 20). 16mo (ca 14cm x 10cm). Staple-bound printed wrappers; 12pp. Mild external wear and soil; Very Good. Signed in type at end of text by John McDonald, Jacob Lillich, and N.L. Mathias, as "The Committee."

        Schriftsteller und Kulturhistoriker (1878-1938): Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wien, ohne Jahr [Ende 1899]. Kl.-8°. 2 S., - Sehr früher Brief, wohl an den Herausgeber einer neu gegründeten Zeitschrift, kurz nach dem Einzug in seine Wiener Wohnung: "Lieber Herr Doktor, // Meine Adresse ist von. nun. an // Wien. XVIII, Gentzgasse 7 // Ich erwarte die Korrektur meines Essays, von dem ich mit festem Gottvertrauen hoffe, daß er in der ersten Nummer erscheinen wird. Die Bölschesache [es geht wohl um den populärwissenschaftlichen Schriftsteller Wilhelm Bölsche] nehme ich noch heute in Angriff. In München war die Sache nicht zu machen; aber Sie bekommen sie noch rechtzeitig. // Im übrigen wünsche ich Ihrem jungen Unternehmen alles Glück, hoffend, daß es ein helles Banner der Kulturideale werden wird, um das sich gewiß alle fortschrittlichen Elemente scharen werden, umsomehr als ja Ihre Honorarsätze recht akzeptabel sind. In diesem Sinne // Ihr Egon Friedell" - // - Friedell hatte in Bad Hersfeld das Abitur nachgeholt und danach in Heidelberg studiert. Seit er 1899 das Erbe seines Vaters zugesprochen bekommen hatte, war er finanziell unabhängig und ging zurück in seine Geburtsstadt Wien. Hier studierte er von 1900 an Philosophie bis zu seiner Promotion "Novalis als Philosoph" (1904) und schrieb Essays für Zeitungen und Zeitschriften. - Möglicherweise ging unser Brief an Karl Kraus, der im April 1899 "Die Fackel" gegründet hatte. Friedells erstes Essays ("Vorturteile") erschien dort aber erst 1905. Zur Zeit unseres Briefes bezog Friedell seine Wohnung in Wien 18, Gentzgasse 7, die er bis zu seinem Tode bewohnte. Am 16. März 1938 entzog er sich durch den tödlichen Sprung aus dem Fenster der Gentzgasse 7 der drohenden Verhaftung nach dem "Anschluß" Österreichs. - Selten!

        Manuscript Journal - Swiss Mountaineering

      Switzerland, 1899. Switzerland, 5-27 August, 1899. Manuscript fair journal recording a three week alpine adventure of mountain climbing, trekking, and exploring remote villages in the Pennine Alps, which features one ascent made to the summit of the Sasseneire with British reverend and mountaineer James Outram whom is best known for his pioneering ascents in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Also with mention of the fatal climbing expedition of Owen Glynne Jones which took place only days after the writer was climbing in the same mountain range in Valais. 8vo. 122 pages. Original black morocco binding and marbled endpapers, recent spine. Wear to extremities of boards, otherwise in very good condition, a pleasing and entertaining volume. A splendidly descriptive mountaineer's account of his adventures and explorations in the Pennine Alps and Saas Valley of the Canton of Valais, Switzerland, through majestic passes and quaint villages seldom visited by foreigners, and reaching at least two summits. The mountaineer is unidentified, although he is from England, possibly a reverend like Outram, and certainly a skilled writer. Text reveals that he had made a journey to Lake Geneva in 1897 and to Moutier in 1896. Some of the places visited include Évolène, Valais, Rhone Valley, Brig, Martigny, St. Maurice, Montreux, Glion, Vevey, Lausanne, Neuchâtel, Bâle, Saint Bernard (Mont Blanc), Trient, Visp, Sasseneire (mountain of the Swiss Pennine Alps), Villeneuve, Lake Geneva, Chillon, and Arolla, where he observes the nuances of local custom including dress and festivities. Of particular interest is the detailed account of summiting the Sasseneire with Reverend James Outram (1864-1925), a British clergyman, renowned mountaineer who made the first ascents of the Canadian Rockies. [Outram began climbing in the Swiss Alps, and went to Canada in 1900 with his brother, also a reverend, William Outram, only shortly after this journal was penned.] Whilst reflecting on his climb with Outram on the 19th of August 1899, amidst the peaks of Valais, he reflects on the fatal mountain climbing accident of famous Welsh mountaineer Owen Glynne Jones, who died on the 28th of August on the Ferpècle arête of the Dent Blanche. [Jones' guides Elias Furrer, Clemenz Zurbriggen and Jean Vuignier were also killed. The four men fell about 1,650 feet (500 m). Mr. F. W. Hill was the party's only survivor.] The diary begins with the adventurer's departure from London 5 August 1899, and provides captivating detail of the journey from urban centers, to vast open regions, first through the Italian Alps, then through the Lepontine Alps, where in the valley of the Wasenhorn crews were busy excavating for railway construction in the Simplon Pass. By 12 August the writer is climbing and trekking in the Saas Valley. He includes pleasing descriptions of the villages Saas-Gund, Saas-Fee and others, the Rossbodenhorn and a "little cabaret on the very edge of the rocky cliff" to which the party climbed up, interesting historical events, ruins, magnificent scenes, and so forth. Ending rather abruptly on 27 August, his final entry is made at Bâle. Excerpts from the manuscript: August 9. "Brig the terminus of the Jura-Simplon Railway at present is a busy little town of 1200 inhabitants situated on the Rhone... Being the starting point of the Simplon route to Italy gives it some importance. The town has a somewhat Italian element in it... has an old castle... Berisal, the 3º refuge 500 y? we took however... Berisal is very beautifully situated high on a promontory rock, with a fine view. It is a good health resort. There we had lunch and while we were at it the diligences came in and changed horses..." August 10. "...Iselle. Here is the Italian custom house, they seem to be most particular about tobacco in Italy... Just beyond Iselle is the south entrance of the great Simplon Tunnel now in course of construction... commenced in 1898, and will be the largest in the world, 12 1/2 miles... It is to be completed in 1903, and the estimated cost will be £2.780.000..." August 12. "... The whole upper part of Monte Moro is a snowfield... the scene at the top of the pass is unsurpassed... absolute perfection. The amphitheatre of mountains consists of the majestic Monte Rosa group, flanked by the Punta delle Loecie, Pizzo Blanco, and Fallarkuppe.... the Saas Valley with the Bietsthorn of the Bernese Apls in the distance... The descent... also on snow for some distance but we glissaded a good deal to get down quickly... the descent is by the way of the Thalliboden glacier over huge masses of rock and boulder... 1200 ft takes about 3/4 hour... this valley is a rough and barren, desolate place... shows the effect of recession of the glaciers during recent times... There are 3 which have shrunk..." August 15. "Descended the Saas-Thal to Visp... Stalden is very picturesquely situated at the junction of 2 valleys... Sion the chief town of the Valais... ruined castle of Tourbillon" August 17. "... Vex is seen ahead... views behind of Sion & the Rhone are good... with the Dents de Veisivi & Pic d'Arzinol... Tête Blanche, the Dent Blanche & the Dent d'Hérens. The growth of vines, walnuts, chestnuts & maize extends as far as Vex." August 18. "Went to Arolla. Day most glorious. The Val d?Herens in which Evolene lies divides at Haudères 1 hour to the south of the village into two branches... Between them forming the projecting mass of mountains are the Grande & Petite Dents de Veisivi - the former 11.237? is memorable as the mountain from which the Hopkinson fell in 1898. The father, eminent electrician, the son and 2 daughters, they fell and went dashed to pieces. They had no guide but were roped together... in the morning we saw the funeral procession of this poor woman who was killed by the land slip. The body was placed on one of the village carts and covered with a cloth, no coffin..." August 19. "Started at 5.45 am with Mr Outram & Mr Gall for the Sasseneire, 10,693, the mountain lying to the East of Evolena. The route early in the morning lies in shade for the first half. At first the path to Villa is taken. It then ascends the Alp Cotter in long zigzags & taking a wind bend to the N. We however did not keep to this but took a straight line up the mountain side, very steep in places... whether we saved time was doubtful, but Mr O had a large map with all the contour lines down & a compass and struck this way. After having got over the Alp with its grassy surface we had nothing but rough slatey debris to traverse till we got to the Col de Sarrent 9563... nothing but a narrow ridge all the way not wide enough for two persons... In 2 or 3 places it is broken... at the foot of one was a hole or chasm over which we had to jump. The actual peak was reached in this way... we rested some time till we got somewhat cold... The ascent took 5 1/2 hours. We then descended to the Col where we again waited... Mr. O. went along the opposite ridge towards the Pointe de Preylet like a goat and we saw him climbing a small rocky peak... Mr. Outram, the elder brother was English Chaplain at Evolena for the month of August. He is a great climber and experienced. Thursday he ascended the Dent Blanche - with a friend and 2 guides... The evening of following day I saw him arrive, he was very tired... very well however... It was only a few days after this that the fatal accident occurred when Mr. Jones & 3 guides were killed, and Mr. Hill his companion returned alone to Zermatt after hours... a very dreadful occurrence." [Also in the Arolla district, six days later, August 25, brothers James and William Outram accompanied by Jean Maitre, reached the summit of the Grande Dent de Veisivi by way of the unclimbed south ridge.] August 20. "Sunday is a good day for studying the natives - who are very distinctive in the Val d'Herens... more intelligent that the peasants in other parts of the Canton de Valais... " August 25. "...Another fine day, after breakfast we looked at Villeneuve, a small walled town dating from Roman times... as it is not a place for visitors we had equally good accommodation & food at much lower charge... The castle of Chillon dates from at latest the 9th century & was much added in the 13th century. It was the residence of the Counts of Savoy and then a state prison - now it is being restored... It is unnecessary to describe it further now, as I did so in 1897 except that its renovation.... There is an electric tram from Chillon..." August 27. "... Lausanne... took the 2 pm train for Bâle [Basel] via Yverdon & Neuchâtel... "The large Cocoa Factory of Suchard is near the station..." End Excerpts. . Very Good.

        Avant - projet de tramway sur la Commune de Saint - Médard - en - Jalles (Avril 1899) Ligne de Saint Médard au Camp. Plan des Traverses manuscrit déroulant au 200e [ Avec : ] Profil en travers schématique [ Avec : ] Profil au point métrique [ Avec : ] Plan général au 10.000e

      1899. Lot de 4 plans déroulants, détaillés ainsi : Plan des Traverses manuscrit : 1 plan manuscrit déroulant format 31 x 1313 cm, encre et aquarelle ; Profil en travers schématique : plan manuscrit déroulant format 31 x 76 cm, encre ; Profil au point métrique : plan manuscrit déroulant format 31 x 57 cm, encre et aquarelle ; Plan général au 10.000e sur papier calque Bel avant - projet établi en avril 1899 pour une ligne de tramway qui aurait relié sur 2225 m le Bourg de Saint - Médard (à la jonction de la ligne de tramway Bordeaux - Saint - Médard - en - Jalles) au "Camp de Saint Médard" (approximativement partant de la Mairie, puis longeant la Jalle par le Nord, apparemment dans l'axe de l'actuelle rue Clémenceau, jusqu'à l'actuelle rue Berthelot). D'une extrême précision, l'impressionnant plan des traverses de plus de 13 mètres de long (échelle d'un centimètre pour 2 mètres...) précise l'identité de chacun des propriétaires de parcelle limitrophe. Ce projet ne semble pas avoir abouti, et si le tramway reliant Bordeaux à Saint - Médard - en - Jalles est bien inauguré en avril 1900, cette extension n'aurait jamais abouti. Durant les deux guerres mondiales, un embranchement conduira le personnel de la poudrerie par l'actuelle rue du Docteur - Alcide Castaing, donc par le sud, mais non par la ligne prévue dans cet avant - projet. Le plan général établi sur papier calque, est fortement abîmé en tête, mais les autres documents (qui faisaient partie de tout un dossier de géomètre), dont l'impressionnant plan des traverses sont en excellent état (un accroc sans manque n'affectant pas le tracé au plan des traverses).

        WESSEX POEMS and Other Verses

      1899. [illustrated by himself] With 30 Illustrations by the Author. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1899. Original light green cloth pictorially decorated in orange, yellow-green, light blue and white. First American Edition of Hardy's first volume of verse, published about six weeks after the London one (which was dated 1898). This volume "marks the final emergence of Hardy's primary interest, verse. The thirty years that remained to him were devoted to the composition of poetry..." [Purdy]. Of particular interest are the 31 illustrations by Hardy himself (the number cited on the title page apparently excludes the frontispiece); they serve as "a pleasant reminder of Hardy's architectural training and his skill as a draughtsman." These illustrations were discarded when WESSEX POEMS was next reprinted (in 1912).~This is a bright, nearly fine copy of this attractively-bound volume (the slightest of shelf-wear at the corners, front endpaper slightly cracked). The English edition consisted of only 500 copies; though the number of American copies is unknown, it could not have been many. Purdy p. 106.

With Émile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893, Louis Anquetin continues to explore new possibilities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, after a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias pictorial which will put margins of the general art movement, and take away from his friends. Dazzled by Baroque art and its creative force, so he thinks his childhood friends were engaged in a path that will lead to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" that is embodied in the re - remember the lessons of Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more conventional, he advocated a return to business by offering to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art in accordance with the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth siècle.Ne leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin turns prolific with its many studies and sketches, which he considered the design was "a very powerful medium of expression," the mandatory basis for all working voluntary arts plastiques.En down of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his obstinacy and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely blocked the path of the great tradition occidentale.On His works are exhibited in many prestigious museums such as the Musée d'Orsay or the Louvre in Paris , San Francisco or Detroit, the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the National Gallery and the Tate in London, etc. - - - Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Signature du cachet de la signature de l'artiste dans l'angle inférieur gauche de l'œuvre, et signature du cachet de l'atelier au verso. Très bel état de conservation. Provenance : atelier de l'artiste, référencée au catalogue Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, né à Étrépagny en 1861 et mort à Paris en 1932, est un important peintre français. Il commence sa carrière aux côtés de peintres d'avant - garde tels que Vincent Van Gogh ou Henri de Toulouse - Lautrec. Avec Émile Bernard, il est l'inventeur du Cloisonnisme. De 1884 à 1893, Louis Anquetin ne cesse d'explorer les possibilités nouvelles offertes par la libération introduite par l'Impressionnisme dans la peinture française. A partir de 1893, à la suite d'une longue confrontation avec les « maîtres d'autrefois », il adopte un parti - pris pictural qui le mettra en marge du mouvement général de l'art, et l'éloignera de ses amis. Ébloui par l'art baroque et sa vigueur créatrice, il pense alors que ses amis de jeunesse se sont engagées dans une voie qui mènera à la mort de la peinture. Il croit en une « peinture parfaite » qui s'incarne dans le re - souvenir des leçons de Michel - Ange et de Rubens notamment. Son travail devient donc plus classique, il prône le retour au métier, en proposant de réfléchir sur les conditions a priori de toute forme d'art possible dans le respect des règles de la perspective et de l'anatomie, telles que pratiquées par les maîtres du XVIème et XVIIème siècle.Ne laissant que quelques œuvres que l'on peut qualifier de monumentales, Anquetin s'avère prolifique par ses nombreuses études et esquisses, lui qui considérait que le dessin était « un moyen d'expression tout puissant », le fondement obligatoire de tous les arts plastiques. En travaillant volontairement à rebours de son époque, Louis Anquetin a rendu possible l'existence d'une figuration moderne originale. Par son obstination et sa passion de la peinture, il a en effet évité que ne soit totalement obturé le chemin de la grande tradition occidentale. On peut admirer ses œuvres dans de nombreux et prestigieux musées comme le Musée d'Orsay ou Le Louvre à Paris, à San Francisco ou à Detroit, au Musée de l'Hermitage de Saint - Petersbourg, à la National Gallery et à la Tate de Londres, etc. une feuille
