Henri Grabrielle Ibels' first exhibit was at the Salon des IndÃ©pendants and he also participated in group shows with other members of the Nabis movement at Louis Le Barc de Bouttevilleâ€™s gallery. A characteristic element of Ibelâ€™s work is a strong, rigorous outline which restrains, emphasizes and serves to flatten form. In many of Ibelâ€™s lithographs rich textural areas are built up by repetitive strokes of the crayon, displaying his skill as a draftsman. His style was bold and expressively graphic.
