Life:

Henri Belfond was a lithographic printer in the rue Gaillon, Paris. He printed several of JW's lithographs between October 1891 and the summer of 1893: Nude Model, Back View (C.45) Draped Figure, Standing (C.46), Lady and Child (C.55), Draped Figure, Reclining (C.56), Red House, Paimpol (C.66) and Yellow House, Lannion (C.67). JW thought well of Belfond but later quarrelled with the firm (#03347). By November 1894 it had gone out of business.
