Original Signed Grandville French Engraving 1852 'Fleur de Pecher'.
This beautiful original Antique French engraving is by renowned caricature artist JJ Grandville (1803-47).
Entitled 'Fleur de Pecher' (peach blossom) it features a worried looking young woman in the attire of a peach tree. Her concern appears to be the fact that the leaves are all fallen and the branches are bare. She is scantily clad, without shoes, and extremely cold. Clutching a fur muff which does not seem to be keeping her warm.
Issued by A Delavau in 1852, this is an original French engraving and NOT a modern reprint.
The colors are wonderful and with only some very minor age discoloration near the edges it is in very good Antique condition.
It measures 6 1/4" x 9 3/4".
