Attractive hand colored Costume Engraving by Gatine (d. 1824) after a painting by Pecheux. The woman in blue is wearing the costume and head-dress of the Caux region of North Eastern Normandy, c. 1811-12. The line of French below the title mentions that "the bonnets were embroidered in gold or silver" .
The print measures about 8" by 11-1/4". It is in good condition, with some foxing. It is c. 1820. There is a loose bit of something between the glass and the print right on the letter "U" of Cauchoise. It does not appear to be damage. The vintage frame has some wear to the gilding of the edges.
I currently have 2 of these early 19th C Gatine prints available in this Ruby Lane shop.
