My great Aunt and Grandmother were friends of Leon and his wife. I have quite a few large pieces and also small drawings, Christmas cards and some small etchings with personal notes. I wish I could have met him.
Donna Lynn's etchingsJ Johnson
Hi Donna Lynn - The set of ten (10) framed etchings you have probably originally came as fold-over cards. At least that is how they were originally issued. Your grandfather could have had them all framed, or if he bought them direct from Pescheret, it's entirely possible that Pescheret himself framed them. When he sold his etchings out of his studio, he generally made all of his own frames.

Hello, I am soo very sorry to bother you with this, but today i bought this little etching for a quarter because it looked old. I brought it home and was looking on the bottom, and found a name; Leon Pescheret
on the left, and signed on the right in pencil, its black and white, and looks very old, I cannot find this peticular picture anywhere. its dated 1933, I cant find anyone to help me figure out what it IS that I have, so any help would be appreciated. part of it has a tower, and looks like a man standing in the doorway, I have a very bad pic of it from my webcam, but its not too great.

I have two Leon Pescheret etchings. We recieved these from my husband's grandmother who attened Whitewater back in the 1920's. The first on is titled Mt. Le Conte #2 in pencil on the left and signed in pencil on the right. The second one is titled Up Turkey Nest Way and looks to be in pen and is also signed in pencil on the right. Does anyone know the dates of these etchings? They are in the original frames, should I take them somewhere to have them preserved better, are they valuable enough to pay that expense?Any feed back would be great. thanks

I have two Leon Pescheret works, one is the cacti, and the other of Bascom Hall in Madison. I was really surprised to find he was well known. My grandmother bought these years ago.

the Pescheret homeGary Beane
I did go to WSU, Whitewater, 1968-1973 and lived in what was the home of Mr. Pescheret in the loft above the two car garage surrounded by walnut trees and with a formal lilly garden in the back yard.
I have been cleaning out my fathers home and finally took a good look at an etching that has been sitting in his basement for years, not matted. It is signed in pencil in the lower right hand side and on the plate, 1931. And in pencil the title,Elizabethan Hall. Does someone have some info on this piece. I do not find it listed anywhere.

I am happy to report the Pescheret collection was not lost in the fire and is safe and sound in the library at the university. I had a chance to see it several years ago and I have a list of the entire collection.
Wanted Leon PescheretE Babbe
I met Leon in his home studio when I attended college in Whitewater in 1952. Asked him which of his etchings he considered his best, for black and white he said the "Abduction", for colored "Burton Parish". I bought them both and they remain on my wall. I understand that the large collection of his works at the Whitewater WI college burned many years ago when the tower caught fire, and that they would like them to be replaced. Where is the market for his works?

Leon Rene PescheretRobert Connors
Leon R. Pescheret was born near London, and completed his early education there. He came to the United States as a young man, and served in the US Army in 1917. After the war he developed his etching talent while establishing himself as a nationally-famous decorator and designer. He eventually gave up his commercial success to focus full-time on his love of etching. He later returned to Europe, where he studied under the world-renowned Roger Hebbelinck, color etcher of the court of Belgium, in order to perfect his own color techniques. He also studied engraving at the Royal College of Engraving in London. Later in life, he gave one man shows at a number of prestigious institutions, including the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC. His works have hung in numerous galleries and museums, including the Chicago Art Institute, and the New York Library.
