Bracquemond became much more successful as a printmakers than as a painter. Bracquemond exhibited prints in Impressionist exhibitions in the 1870s and 1880s, and he acted as technical advisor to Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, and Camille Pissarro, who began to make prints together in 1879. In The Rainbow Bracquemond daringly combined color lithography with color etching in a single print.
