This charming lithograph from the 19th century,was made from a series of 18th century sanguine engravings,engraved by Guber and designed by Jean-Baptiste Huet around 1783 for the gazette
‘’ Galerie des Modes et Costumes Français’’.
This is the fourth plate of the series published by Bonnet rue St Jacques in Paris,under the title
‘’Etude pour les demoiselles’’
This suite was the subject of sanguine prints and black prints.
It represents an elegant young lady on a walk, with a small dog in arms and sheltering under a parasol.
She wears a cap ,and a dress called ‘’ à la Lévite ‘’,fashionable by the queen Marie- Antoinette during her first pregnancy,due to its lightness and ampleness !
This pretty lithograph was recently, and very well, re-framed by a professional framer, with a cardboard matched to the lithograph’s tones.
The paper is in overall good condition.Please note a fold at the bottom left and some little brown stains at the top,small very forgivable faults for an ancient paper.
The frame is made of varnished burr veneer on the front,and black on the sides. There are some yellow stains on the cardboard at the back.
A solid metal ring allows to hang it.
Dimension : 14,8’’ x 11,8’’ framed (37,5cm x 30cm)
9,6’’ x 6,7’’ sight (24,5cm x 17cm)
Please do not take into account some white traces due to the glass.
