The publisher Alfred Cadart helped to spur the renewal of interest in etching among French artists. In 1862 he founded the Société des aquafortistes (Society of Etchers), which began to regularly publish work by its members. The Gazette des Beaux-Arts also published etchings, including this reproduction of Delacroix’s successful 1838 painting in the Musée du Louvre. He depicted Medea preparing to murder her children after discovering the betrayal of her lover, the Greek hero Jason.
