Félix Bracquemond.

Félix Bracquemond (1865) by Nadar.

Félix Henri Bracquemond (1833-1914) was a French painter and etcher who played a key role in the revival of printmaking, encouraging artists such as Édouard Manet, Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro to use the technique.

Unusually for a prominent artist of this period, he also designed pottery for a number of French factories, in an innovative style that marks the beginning of Japonisme in France. His wife was the impressionist painter Marie Bracquemond.
