More Views

Edmond François Aman-Jean was born in Chevry-Cossigney (Seine et Marne). His real name was Jean Amand. Aman-Jean produced his first lithographs around 1890, encouraged by Léonce Bénédite. Although closely associated with Seurat, Edmond Aman-Jean was more influenced by Symbolism than Pointillism, perhaps because of his close friendships with the Symbolist poets Mallarmé and Verlaine. Aman-Jean took up etching in 1908 under the influence and tutelage of his close friend Albert Besnard. Before WWI Aman-Jean had considerable success in the United States as well as in France. (Idbury Prints) L'Estampe Moderne appeared in 1897-99 as a series of 24 monthly fascicles, each of 4 original lithographs, priced at 3 francs 50 centimes and printed by Imprimerie Champenois of Paris. Many accomplished European Art Nouveau painters contributed works to this publication. The richly lithographed prints had as blind stamp or embossed device, the imprint of a young woman's profile in the lower right corner. The prints are much sought after in the current art world.
