Historical Context:
Henri-Gabriel Ibels was a print-maker, illustrator and painter. He was one of the original members of the "Nabis" art movement of the 1890s, a movement led by Post-Impressionist and Avant-Garde artists who strongly influenced the subsequent fine and graphic art styles in France. He is known for his bold, expressive works that are typically portraits of the influential artists of the time, and was very much inspired by contemporary Parisian life and the city of Paris.
