Manuel Robbe (1872-1936) lived in Paris all his life, creating images that echoed the polished splendour of the Belle Epoque. He exhibited often at the Salons, first at the Societe des Artistes Francais (winning a gold medal at the Exposition Universelle of 1900) and after 1905 at the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts. A master of colour aquatint, his work in this medium is characterised by stylish figures in settings with large areas of black or grey punctuated by splashes of shimmering pastels. As the turn of the century critic Gabriel Moury noted, Robbe’s favourite subject was the “modern woman:” her costumes and activities and the visual elegance of her world.
