Description

:

Original etching by Pierre-Nolasque Bergeret, signed in the plate and titled in the plate Philippo Lippi Esclave a Alger fait le portrait de son Maitre qui en recompense lui donna sa liberte. Printed by Ch. Chardon on ivory-tinted china paper, drymounted onto a wove backing sheet (chine applique). A stunning etching illustrating a scene from Vasari's Life of Filippo Lippi. Published by L'Artiste in 1864, the year after the artist's death. This scene haunted Bergeret's imagination. The etching was made in 1838, nearly 20 years after his painting of the same subject was exhibited at the Salon de Paris in 1819; there is a pen-and-ink drawing in the Peabody Art Collection, Maryland; the whereabouts of the painting are unknown.
