The text below the image identifies this man as Alfred Cadart, who helped to spur a renewal of interest in etching among French artists. In 1862 he founded the Société des aquafortistes, or Society of Etchers which is identified beneath his portrait.

At the lower left, below the image, in Latin: "M. Desboutin. del[ineavit]. et sc[ulpsit]," or "M. Desboutin drew and engraved this." At the lower right, it reads: "Vve. A. Cadart, Edit. Imp. 56, Bd Haussmann. Paris." Beneath, "M. Alfred Cadart / Foundatour de la société des Aqua fortistes"

Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
