Sold as presented. Henri Rivière, born in 1864 in Paris, died in 1951 in Sucy-en-Brie, is a French painter, engraver and illustrator. He began his career with drawing (strongly inspired by the works of Gustave Doré) then by intaglio and specifically etching in 1882. At the same time, he began a career as a director and scenographer, in 1886, from the shadow theater at the Chat Noir cabaret, shows that he improves by creating very innovative color sets. He was in charge of artistic direction until the closing of Le Chat Noir in 1897. He then devoted himself exclusively to painting and engraving and established himself in the history of etching, printmaking and painting. woodcut, lithography and watercolor. Henri Rivière was born in Paris in 1864. Through his mother Henriette, he is the nephew of Alphonse-Henri-François Leroux (1831-1895), chicory industrialist in Orchies. His father is a haberdasher and comes from Ax-les-Thermes. The young Rivière was trained in pictorial art in 1880 with the history painter Émile Bin, then gave illustrations to various newspapers [Which ones?]. In 1882, meeting Rodolphe Salis, he was appointed editorial secretary of the weekly review of the Black Cat. In 1886 he became responsible for the Chat Noir theater project, which opened at no.12 rue Victor-Massé in December 1887. Renewing the shadow theater, he created the set for the show La Tentation de Saint-Antoine, on a text by Édouard Norès after the poem by Gustave Flaubert, painted on colored glass plates in the background, while the characters, cut out on a sheet of zinc, appear in the foreground like a shadow cast by a lamp placed under the stage, a little forward, sending its rays at an angle. He designed the staging and all the sets until the theater closed in 1897. In addition to La Tentation, he created La Marche à l'Etoile, mystery in 10 tableaux (1893), based on the poems and music of Georges Fragerolle , as well as The Prodigal Son, and a Sainte-Geneviève with the same. Moreover, from 1885 to 1895, he stayed every summer in Saint-Briac-sur-Mer, while visiting other places in Brittany, always fascinated by the sea. In 1888, Auguste Lepère created with Félix Bracquemond, Daniel Vierge and Tony Beltrand, the original L'Estampe review, in order to interest artists and amateurs in new methods and trends in printmaking, particularly in color. In this period when Japonism had a great influence on the decorative arts, Henri Rivière produced from this date, from 1888 to 1902, The Thirty-six views of the Eiffel Tower. In 1891, Valloton also renewed the woodcut, with Gauguin or Émile Bernard and Toulouse-Lautrec in turn revolutionized the art of the poster, by drawing the one intended for the famous cabaret opened in 1889, entitled Moulin-Rouge - La Goulue , followed by the one made in 1894 by Alfons Mucha for Sarah Bernhardt in the role of Gismonda.He married Eugenie Ley in 1895 and lived at no 29 boulevard de Clichy in Paris. The couple built a house in Loguivy-de-la-Mer (Ploubazlanec, at the mouth of the Trieux), and that is where the summers were spent until 1913. In 1912, when his brother died Jules, he takes care of his nephew Georges-Henri Rivière, a future museologist. In 1917, Henri Rivière ceased to express himself through prints, and he used watercolor, already a little practiced since 1890 (he painted about a thousand watercolors). He traveled a lot, spent the Second World War in Buis-les-Baronnies where his wife died in 1943, became blind in 1944, and dictated his memoirs, published in 2004 under the title Les Détours du chemin.
