Original Signed Grandville French Engraving 'Pensee' 1867.

Original Signed French Grandville Engraving 1867 'Pensee'.

Here I list another beautiful original Antique engraving by French caricaturist JJ Grandville.

From his most renowned book 'Les Fleurs Animees' comes this lovely hand colored caricature of a young woman in the garb of a Pansy.

Entitled 'Pensee' it is a play on words with the Pansy flower and her thoughtful pensive (pensee) expression.

As with all the engravings from this series the colors are as fresh as if rendered yesterday, but it is an original engraving from 1867, and NOT a modern reprint.

Published by Garnier Freres, it is signed both by JJ Grandville and Ch Geoffroy.

Measuring 6 1/4" x 9 3/4" it has some very mild edge discoloration, a small line down the right hand edge where it has been 'tipped into' a book, and a water mark in the lower left corner which will not be visible after framing. Otherwise is in very good Antique condition.
