A marvellous and rare series of 12 hand-coloured Prints showing the various 'stages' of a Bullfight.
Dating to the late 19th century (1875-1895 ),the scenes numbered from 1 to 12 and with inscriptions in French ( Spanish bullfighting has always been very popular in south-western France) ,the prints having been engraved from original pen and ink drawings which have then been painted in watercolours.
They depict the stages of a Spanish 'corrida' including the 'Picador' (who comes to grief), the setting on of dogs, placing of the banderillas, the final act with Matador and cape , and with the bull being dragged away at the very end.
A savage pageant which even in Spain is gradually losing popularity, but with a visual impact which has always interested painters like Picasso.
The prints have been re-framed recently and are set behind non-reflective glass. Sizes 14 inches x 20 each approx.
