1831. WRITTEN, DRAWN AND LITHOGRAPHED BY WOMEN JARRY DE MANCY, Adele and Jean-Francois LE BRETON. Le Dessin d'Apres, Nature et sans Maitre, suivant la Methode du Professeur le Breton, consistant a faire Dessiner d'Apres Nature, des la Premiere Lecon, par Mme Jarry de Mancy, Nee Adele le Breton, Peintre et Professeur... [4], iv, 107, [1] pp. Illustrated with 33 full-page lithograph plates numbered 1-32 plus 8bis, signed Mme. Marchand after Mme. Jarry de Mancy. Folio, 290 x 460 mm, bound in contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards. Paris: Paul Renouard for the Author, 1831. |~||~||~||~| First Edition, second issue. A female artist's treatise on her famous father's drawing method, illustrated with her own drawings lithographed by another female artist. Le Breton (1761-1838) studied under David in Paris, where his eponymous drawing method was so sought after that he continued giving lessons to at least one imprisoned student during the Reign of Terror ("Jean-Francois Le Breton," in Réunion des sociétés des beaux-arts des départements a la Sorbonne, 1885, p. 435). Adele Jarry de Mancy (1794-1854), Le Breton's daughter and pupil, was a distinguished member of the Athenée des Arts de Paris. She published two of Le Breton's treatises, of which this is the second. More than the earlier Traité de perspective simplifiée linéaire (1828), this drawing manual emphasizes methods for capturing the human form: in movement, portraiture, and features including ears, hands, and noses. Three of the 33 lithographs were executed in a soft bistre, showing two views of a castle; stages in a portrait of a woman; and a (conservatively rendered) male nude.
