Hello Dear Steemit Friends ! Today I would like to present you Rodolphe Bresdin ( 1822 – 1885 ) , French draughtsman, etcher and lithographer.

Bresdin's prints were generally tiny and executed with meticulous detail ; biblical scenes are set in fantastic landscapes, densely enclosed with vegetation, with mysterious, slightly macabre overtones.

Bresdin lived in obscurity and poverty. He dreamed of visiting the untamed backwoods of America and after winning a competition for a banknote design in 1871 he travelled there, to return penniless in 1876. Bresdin was much admired by the symbolist writers – his personality inspired Champfleury's novel ''Chien-Caillou''.
