Ricardo de Los Rios


Four Delightful Etchings











Ricardo de Los Rios
1846 - 1929

Los Rios was born in Spain but worked most of his life in Paris. Not a famous artist, yet one who
regularly appeared on the European art scene at the end of the 19th century, Los Rios illustrated
many of the works of Honoré de Balzac (
The Splendors and Miseries of Courtesans  and
La Comédie Humaine, for example)
and the works of certain Spanish
literary figures.  His work continues to be found in the Museo del Prado
as well as the Biblioteca Nacional de España
.  Los Rios' etchings are both typical of the style
and character of his time, yet are delightfully unique and alive.

These examples are original etchings from the 1881 edition of Alain René le Sage's
The History of Vanillo Gonzales
.  The images are 3 x 4 1/4 inches plus ample borders.
  Each is signed in the plate.
