Bracquemond was a member of Alfred Cadart's Société des aquafortistes, and had helped Édouard Manet refine his etching technique. He modeled this etching on another celebrity portrait by Nadar, this time a photograph of the influential poet and critic Théophile Gautier, whose brocade cap and massive overcoat cast him as a Romantic poet. Bracquemond's etching appeared in the periodical L'Artiste, accompanying a glowing article on Gautier written by Charles Baudelaire.
