Louis Icart Etchings, Illustrated Books, and Artwork
Louis Icart - France (1888- 1950)
Louis Icart created etchings of women from the art deco period. His art epitomizes the image of the female form during that time, and he often used his wife Fanny as his model. He used a combination of techniques to create over 500 etchings. These include drypoint, etching, and sugaring. Each etching was enhanced with hand coloring. While he generally hand signed his etchings in the lower right corner he usually didn't do the hand coloring. This would have been done by his studio. In the limited edition book "Buying Works by Icart," we descibe the techniques in more detail. The book gives auction prices of his etchings and is updated every six months. He created full sized etchings and erotic illustrated books. The illustrated books were sold in France and the bookplates were unsigned. He also created pastel enhanced lithographs, posters, postcards, and oils on canvas.
