“Portrait of Murillo”. Etching, 6 1/8 X 4 9/16. Executed in 1880. In Fine Condition; no tears, creases, foxing or staining. Not laid down. This particular etching is included in several prestigious collections, including Georgetown University and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
Paul Adolphe Rajon was a painter and printmaker, who started his career as a photographer while studying at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris under Isidore-Alexandre-Augustin Pils. Rajon was a friend of Emile Boilvin, Philippe Burty, Felix Bracquemond and Louis-Charles-Auguste Steinheil. He was awarded medals at the Salons of 1869, 1870, 1873 and at the Exposition Universelle of 1878. He etched both contemporary works and Old Masters as well as portraits, including portrayals of Ivan Turgenev, Theophile Gautier, J.S. Mill, Charles Darwin and Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Rajon was critically praised in France, England and the United States, through the acquaintance with the American print dealer Frederick Keppel. Paul Rajon is listed in Mallett and Davenport’s Art Reference and Price Guides.
