Manuel Bruquère, a Parisian otolaryngologist and publisher, published a limited number of beautifully illustrated print books for bibliophiles between the 1930s and 1960s, with the help of his friend Jean-Gabriel Dallañez, a painter and printing workshop owner. Today, little is known about the man himself. However, the interaction between him and Daláñez with the painters and literary figures active in France at the time resulted in a beautiful book of prints.
The works take the form of books that feature each artist, many of them in praise of that artist. Some of the most prominent artists of French art in the first half of the 20th century, such as Marc Chagall and Maurice Utrillo, were included, while others whose names are less well known today also participated. Brocaire’s print books show the richness and elegance of French prints of the time. This exhibition features approximately 500 works from 49 books in the collection of the Meguro Museum of Art, Tokyo.
