A virtuoso of drawing and a master of drypoint, Paul-César Helleu was also an exceptional painter whose work was very much part of the Impressionist movement. Although today he is little known to the public at large, during his lifetime he was quite famous on both sides of the Atlantic. Thanks to firsthand accounts left by his daughter and research that has been carried out over the past fifteen years, we have been able to follow in the footsteps of this unique painter and bring together the important pieces of his body of work. This richly illustrated volume takes us on a journey into Helleu’s world, at the height of a period populated by characters dear to Marcel Proust.
