'Au Square' must be counted amongst the great images of the history
of the colour lithograph of the 'Nabis' era in France. At the same
time it is the only major colour lithograph by Evenpoel. In a single
work he achieved a perfect balance between the expressive distortion
of form and an evocative highly decorative use of colour which was
the aim of that group of artists who had all been influenced by the
ideas of Gauguin and of symbolism into a reaction to the 'pure visual
sensation' of Impressionism. (Weston)
L'Espagnol à Paris (Moulin Rouge)
by Henri-Jacques-Edouard Evenepoel, 1899
Henri-Jacques Evenepoel was born in Belgium by moved to Paris
around 1890. He had inspiration and talent enough to be one of the
great artists of his generation but his tragic death in 1899 at the
age of 27 prevented him from achieving full maturity. After the early
influence of Manet and of Impressionism he met Lautrec in 1892. Introduced
to the artists of the Nabis circle - Bonnard, Vuillard and Denis for
example - he adopted their treatment of pictorial composition and
their use of form and colour to create an emotional rather than a
visual impression. (Weston)
Not unlike the Maitre de L'Affiche series, L'Estampe
Moderne was a portfolio printed between 1897-98, published
by Imprimerie Champenois, Paris, contained 24 monthly portfolios,
with four original lithographs in each. Each commissioned only for
this series. Some of the contributing artists included Mucha, Rhead,
Meunier, Ibels, Steinlen, Willette and Grasset.
