"Faucon en Porcelaine de Mikavadji" by Henri Guérard

This is an original 1883 black and white etching aquatint of a porcelain falcon attributed to a Japanese artist name Mikavadji (most likely Mika Yaji) by Henri Guérard. As noted in the bottom caption, this print is a half scale of the porcelain falcon that was in the private collection of M. Henri Cernuschi.

Henri-Charles Guérard was born in Paris on April 24, 1846. Guérard started his artistic career in architectural design studying at the Ecoles des Beux-Art. However, by 1870 his focus had shifted from architecture to engraving and painting. This was in large part thanks to his teacher Nicholas Berton. When his brother married Eva Gonzales, this became an opening to establish himself in a larger circle of artists. Working with the likes of Manet and Renoir, he found himself a part of the elite society within Impressionist artists. Still shown in many places today, he lived to see his work displayed in galleries across the Western world.
