Sainte Madeleine

Many of the prints in L’Ymagier were reproduced on sliver-thin exotic or colored papers that, when folded, might open vertically, horizontally, or both. Contemporary prints by several of the artists he knew in Pont-Aven—including Charles Filiger, Paul Gauguin, Armand Séguin, and Roderic O’Conor—and other painters he admired, such as Émile Bernard and Henri Rousseau, were collated with Renaissance and folkloric imagery, Épinal prints, facsimiles of early typography, and non-Western art.

Found imagery, Remy de Gourmont (1858–1915), Sainte Madeleine, wood engraving, and Armand Séguin (1869–1903), Femme couchée, zincograph, in L’Ymagier, no. 2 (January 1895). The Morgan Library & Museum, gift of Robert J. and Linda Klieger Stillman, 2017. PML 197080.
