Jules Jacquemart was trained in etching at a young age by his father, an amateur artist, and went on to produce both reproductive and original prints. A founding member of the Société des Aquafortistes, he worked closely with Alfred Cadart and even contributed the title page to the group's first album. The idyllic landscape depicted in this print, from the 1864 edition of "Eaux-fortes modernes," is typical of the subject matter promoted by the group. Its intricately etched combination of scumbled, crosshatched, and parallel lines reflects the interest in both tradition and innovation that characterized the group during the 1860s.
