Antique 18th century etching engraved by Nicolas de Launay (1739-1792) after a painting by Jan Weenix (1640-1719) entitled "The Party" ("Partie de plaisirs").
Nicolas de Launay was member of The Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture, premier art institution in France in the eighteenth century and had the status of "graveur du roi" ("king's engraver"). "Partie de plaisirs" is cited to be one of his most notorious works, mainly due to the richness of details and the complexity of Weenix's original work.

This exact etching is also part of the collection of the notorious Petit Palais Museum in Paris (object number GDUT5667 that you can see on museums website "parismuseescollections") as well as the collection of the British Museum (view British Museum website, museum object number 1891,0511.92).
