Sale 2437 Lot 68 ÉDOUARD MANET La Barricade. Lithograph printed in black on grayish cream Chine appliqué on ivory wove paper, 1871. 465x334 mm; 18 3/8x13 1/4 inches, full margins. Second state (of 2). Edition of approximately only 50. Printed by Lemercier, Paris, with the address lower center. A superb, richly-inked impression of this extremely scarce, important lithograph. As Fisher notes, "The central group of soldiers was taken directly from the lithograph The Execution of Maximilian, which a tracing on the verso of the watercolor shows," (Fisher, The Prints of Édouard Manet, Wahsington, D.C., 1985, page 93). Manet's nearly identical watercolor of the barricade scene is now in the Szépmüvézeti Museum, Budapest. Fisher continues, "The composition of the lithograph follows the outlines of the central group very closely, although in reverse, suggesting Manet used a tracing from a photograph of the drawing because the figures are slightly smaller. On the left, a soldier remains only partially traced, so that only the head shows. This figure, who in the Maximilian composition holds the raised sword, is cut off in the drawing as well. That Manet used the earlier composition [of Maximilian's execution] with its specifically republican sympathies is reinforced by a reference to Goya's painting The Third of May and his etchings from the Disasters of War series." Stylistically, the densely-drawn figural scene in the foreground, with the execution of the single, defiantly-gesturing communard standing to the right, is contrasted with the loosely sketched, geometrically abstract city-scape background. Manet's expressive drawing of the background, using the side of the lithographic crayon, and the scribbling of lines to suggest the barricade and the building to the far right, are on par with the techinque in his contemporaneous Les Courses, 1865-72, both works boldly anticpating modern and contemporary lithography.

II, Paris, 1975, no. 34, illustrated p. 15 Catalogue Note Between 1878 and 1883 Manet executed nearly sixty pastel portraits of fashionable Parisian women. Many of the sitters were friends, some were actresses and others were models. Most were fascinating and beautiful, and several—for example, the actress Méry Laurent—were known to be involved with such figures as Stéphane Mallarmé and perhaps Manet himself. The present work depicts Madame du Paty, who was the wife of the genre and history painter Léon du Paty. According to Adolphe Tabarant, she was close to the Manet family (Adolphe Tabarant, op. cit., p. 368). Moreau-Nélaton reports that she was "une mondaine à qui l'on prête quelques aventures" (Etienne Moreau-Nélaton, op. cit., p. 68). This charming work was first in the collection of Madame du Paty herself, who lent it to the posthumous exhibition of Manet's work held in Paris in 1884. Subsequently it was acquired by the distinguished collector Auguste Pellerin whose superb collection of works by Manet was the subject of an exhibition at the Galerie Bernheim-Jeune in Paris in 1910.

Sale 2429 Lot 320 ÉDOUARD MANET Au Prado II. Aquatint and etching printed in black on cream laid Japan paper, 1863-67. 222x155 mm; 8 3/4x6 1/8 inches, full margins. Second state (of 2). The Porcaboeuf edition of approximately only 12, aside from the Manet edition of only several proofs. A superb, richly-inked impression of this extremely scarce etching. We have found fewer than 12 other impressions at auction in the past 30 years. Harris notes that the 1863 Manet edition consisted of, "An edition of between 5 and 28 sets of 15 etchings, printed on Chine paper for friends and patrons of the artist . . . Later sets of the edition might have included State I of Au Prado II, which is known in proofs on Chine." As this subject was not originally included in the 1863 Manet edition, it seems likely that most, if not all, of the impressions to have appeared at auction over the past 30 years are from the Porcaboeuf edition.
