Ribot, Theodule Augustin. FIVE ETCHINGS - RESTAURANT SUBJECTS. Etchings, c 1880s. L'AIDE DE CUISINE, LES EPLUCHEURS, LE DEJEUNER DU CHAT and two UNTITLED kitchen scenes of Chefs and assistants. All India proofs mounted on wove paper; all signed within the image, the first three with the printed titles, the address of Cadart & Luquet, the publishers, and with the printed names of Ribot as the etcher and Delatre as the Printer, the others without the printed titles and Cadart's address. All in very good consition, except for light foxing on the support sheet of Eplucheurs. Theodule Augustin Ribot (French, 1823-1891) a well-listed and highly regarded 19th Century artist who was a member of the circle of realist painters, including Legros, Fantin-Latour and Whistler, who formed "Les Refuses" in 1859, based on their mutual admiration of Courbet. Among his important works is a painting titled "L'Interieur de Cusine," which was exhibited at the Salon of 1861, and to which these etchings have a strong affinity.
