Marie & Felix Bracquemond (1841-1916)
Felix Bracquemond began as a lithographer and etcher. His friendship with Manet and other Impressionists led him to participate in various Impressionist exhibitions. He was appointed art director of the Sevres porcelain factory and shortly afterwards moved to the same position at the Haviland factory in Limoges. The paintings of his wife Marie were closer to the general ideas of Impressionism. Marie was something of a recluse, and many of her finest works were painted in her own garden.
