1846 - 1929
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
Honoré de Balzac (The
Splendors and Miseries of Courtesans
La Comédie Humaine, for example)
and the works of certain Spanish
literary figures. His work continues to be found in the Museo
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
The History of Vanillo Gonzales. The images are 3
x 4 1/4 inches plus ample borders.
Each is signed in the plate.
