Description: Lombard was a painter whose works were exhibited at the Salon of Paris. Like many of his contemporaries he became a member of the Society of Etchers and produced several etchings for the Society’s portfolio publications. Of particular note were his Spanish etching portraits such as the burro keeper in Le Borriquero.

This etching was expertly printed by master printer and etcher Auguste Delatre at his shop in Paris. Delatre believed that either the artist must be a printer, or the printer must be an artist. For those artists who weren’t printers, Delatre printed etchings that presented their works at the highest level.

From a technical point of view these etchings from Delatre’s shop are some the finest prints that have ever been produced.
