Auguste Delâtre

Leading French printer and etcher (1822 - 1907) based in Paris and associated with Japonisme and the etching revival

Delâtre worked in printmakers studios from the age 12. He later established his own workshop making artist's prints as well as producing his own etchings. He printed works for artists such as James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903), Charles Meryon (1821-1868) and Sir Francis Seymour Haden (1818-1910).

He pioneered a type of monoprinting, known as the 'mobile etching' technique, where ink was painted directly on to the printing plate to allow a unique impression to be made from the plate.
