Lot 144: Bracquemond (Felix, 1833-1914). Alphonse Legros, 1875, etching, showing head and shoulders, three quarter profile portrait, final state with text to lower margin, plate size 16 x 12 (6.75 x 4.75ins), framed and glazed. Provenance: From the Roy Davids Collection. This fine etching depicts the young Alphonse Legros (1837-1911) in Paris at the age of twenty-four years, the year before Cadart and Bracquemond formed the Societe des Aquafortistes, which Legros was invited to join. Two years later, at Whistler's suggestion, he moved permanently to London. (1)
