Although now rather poorly known outside the circle of print connoisseurs, Félix Buhot (1847 - 1898) approached printmaking with all the refinement of a master craftsman, fully accomplished in the various techniques of his art.
He was also a keen observer
of the urban scene, with an eye for atmosphere. Although he spent most
of his life in France, Buhot was a confirmed Anglophile
(marrying English watercolorist Henry Johnston's daughter in 1882)
and a fervent admirer of Whistler. He unfortunately died quite young, in the throes of a severe depression.
