Attractive c. 1820 Hand Colored Costume Engraving entitled "Costume de Coutances" showing a woman with an elaborate head-dress strolling down a country lane whilst reading a red book.
Coutances is a town in what is now Basse-Normandie. It was engraved by Gatine (who died in 1824) after a painting by Lante. Gatine executed several other works based on drawings by Lante. The genre painter Louis-Marie Lante (born 1789) did watercolors for several collections of costume published by Journal des Modes after 1817.
The print measures about 8" by 11-1/4" and is framed in a vintage frame. The print is in good condition, with some slight foxing. The gilding on the frame is worn in several places.
This is one of 2 Gatine engravings currently available at Owen's Antiques.
