À Bientôt, ca. 1890s



‘À Bientôt’ painted by Valentine Cameron Prinsep (ca. 1876), etched by Leopold Flameng, 1882

À Bientôt (See You Soon), was apparently very well-received at the time, being exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1876, and progressing to the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1878.

Bought from the artist by Mr Gustav Christian Schwabe Esq, of 19 Kensington Park Gardens, London and Hamburg, Germany and donated in 1886 to the Hamburger Kunsthalle, from where de-accessioned on 19 January 1924 and bought by Julius Stern of Dusseldorf, where bought by the grand-father of the late owner. An etching by Leopold Flameng was published in 1882.
