France 1830 - Aquatint, by Jean-Pierre-Marie Jazet, proof before letters. A rare proof impression of this classic equestrian portrait by Vernet, here interpreted in aquatint by one the greatest French exponents of the technique. J.-P. M. Jazet (1788-1871) exhibited in his own right at the Paris Salon from 1819 to about 1830, but is perhaps best known for his aquatint prints of Carle Vernet's greatest works. Vernet was a member of a prominent family of French painters. His father was a well-known marine painter, but his son, Carle Vernet, rose to fame under the empire with his drawings of the Italian campaign and his paintings The Battle of Marengo and Morning of Austerlitz. Under the Restoration he was popular as a lithographer and painter of dogs, horses, and scenes of the hunt. His son Émile Jean Horace Vernet, 1789-1863 went on to become one of the most popular military painters of the 19th century. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
