EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the Frontispiece for "Les Treteaux de Monselet", a renowned piece of 19th-century art. Created by French artist Félix Bracquemond in 1859, this etching captures the essence of entertainment and literature during that era. The image transports us to a bustling circus or theater stage, where a crowd eagerly awaits the performance. In the center stands a graceful ballerina, her elegant ballet dancer attire contrasting beautifully against the monochrome backdrop. The intricate details of her costume are brought to life through Bracquemond's skillful etching technique. As we delve deeper into the scene, we notice other characters surrounding the ballerina - perhaps actors from different professions depicted in Charles Monselet's book "Les Treteaux de Monselet". This frontispiece serves as an introduction to their world, inviting readers to explore its wonders within. Bracquemond's artistic prowess shines through in this illustration. The composition exudes energy and movement while maintaining a sense of elegance and sophistication. It is no wonder that this artwork has found its place among the prestigious collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. With its rich historical context and visual allure, this print allows us to appreciate Félix Bracquemond's contribution to 19th-century arts. It reminds us of how literature, theater, and dance have always been intertwined throughout history – providing endless fascination for generations past and present
