Félix Bracquemond

May 28, 1833 - Oct 29, 1914

Félix Henri Bracquemond was a French painter and etcher. He played a key role in the revival of printmaking, encouraging artists such as Édouard Manet, Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro to use this 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.
He was the husband of the Impressionist painter Marie Bracquemond.
