LEPIC, Ludovic-Napoléon (Vicomte)
Ludovic-Napoléon Lepic (1839 –1889) was a French artist and patron of the arts. He and Edgar Degas were lifelong friends and both were from comfortable family backgrounds. Lepic studied etching and developed techniques that he showed Degas, and that Degas used for his monotypes. Lepic was involved in early impressionist exhibitions, although he is known predominantly as a salon for his later coast and seascapes. He was also very fond of dogs made numerous etchings of them.
