Charles-André Malardot

1817 Metz - 1879 Paris

Charles-André Malardot was trained in Paris by Joseph Hussenot and Auguste Migette and began making lithographs in 1835 before turning his attention to etching and painting. His prints were evidently only issued in small editions since they are rare. From 1847 Malardot regularly exhibited his works at the Paris Salon. The great originality and technical expertise that are characteristic of Malardot’s printed oeuvre make him, along with Bresdin, one of the most intriguing artistic figures of his time.
