The Thunder Cloud (La Nuée d'Orâge) - FELIX BRACQUEMOND
French , (1833-1914)
Etching, 1878-1887, Beraldi 219 (vi or vii/XIII), edition unknown. 10 1/8 x 13 5/8 in. Signed in the plate, lower left. This is a superb, early impression printed on thin, cream colored laid paper. The margins are substantial and possibly full and untrimmed. The condition is fine apart from wrinkling in the lower margin below the platemark. A comparable impression is in the Rijksmuseum collection and is illustrated in the Van Gogh Museum catalogue on Bracquemond done in 1994. This publication was authored by Charlotte van Rappard-Boon. (See page 49). The influence of Rembrandt is clearly evident in this dramatic landscape.
