L'Equipage Retourne (The Crew Returns)

A luminous color etching with aquatint by Manuel Robbe, under his pseudonym Alphonse Lafitte. Image size 19 x 11 7/8 inches, published in Paris in 1920, pencil signed "A Lafitte", with a blindstamp in the lower left margin. Manuel Robbe studied at the Academie Julien and the Ecole des Beaux Artes, becoming a master of the aquatint medium during the ‘Belle Epoch’ of early 20th century France. He developed much of his own aquatint techniques, which enabled him to create his uniquely painterly, richly colored images.
