Antique French LISTED Artist in Major Museums BORDEAUX Print Engraving w Watercolor Signed 19th C Century RARE!

They call these artworks "animated" today, and there is no doubt a lot of human animation in this exquisite hand watercolored French print circa 1830.

The artist is Anne Claude Thenon 1772 1846, very well listed, owned by many French Art Museums, and sold at Sotheby's. You will also find him on AskArt

The engraving belongs to a series about Roman monuments in France, and it is so delicate it is BREATHTAKING!

It is signed by Thienon, and no other artist on the plate.

Which means the work is an original artwork, and not done after one of his paintings. The other signature is the series printing manager: Lemaitre "Direxit" (directed by) it would otherwise be: "Sculpt."

This is old Bordeaux with its Roman ruins, but besides the architectural interest, and the charming colors, you will love discovering all the Bordeaux people of the time!

The bourgeois couple, the ladies with their plumed hats and children in the center, wearing beautiful Georgian costumes, but also the peasant woman carrying a huge tray of food on her head, and talking to an elderly gentleman with a cane, a soldier or guard, as he is dressed in the French king's color.

They all are very much alive in this artwork, and the combination of this typical Georgian landscape, the finesse of the work, and the realistic presence of all these characters is just irresistible!

The engraving is an aquatint, which explains the remarkable quality, and when you touch the engraved area, the soft feel of it.

But, it is also hand watercolored, which is not immediately obvious, as it is blending so well with the aquatint printing.

The artwork comes with a cream mat.

However, I have found a picture of a similar colored engraving framed in a fantastic frame. (See last Pic)

I cannot think of anything better for this antique French treasure.

MEASUREMENTS: Total Length: 11". Width: 8 3/4".(with mat) Image Length: 5 1/2". Width: 3 1/2".

CONDITION: In good to very good condition. Colored engraving is pristine. Margin on top has been trimmed and upper right corner has small tear/wrinkle.

Will be shipped Registered Airmail (very safe) under thick layers of cardboard and with signature at delivery.
