From the 1867 Grandville edition of "Fleurs Animees" (Garnier Freres edition) this is an authentic 19th Century engraving (not a reproduction!) with its original hand watercolor, signed Grandville in the plate in the lower left corner.
CHEVREFEUILLE (Honeysuckle) is one the most charming scenes in the "Fleurs Animees" series, as it portrays a lovely Victorian lady dressed like a honeysuckle with a rare animal, a goat.
(goats love honeysuckle, and honeysuckle is literally called "goat's leaf" in French)
Colors are beautiful: pinks, burgundy and a fresh green.
A whimsical piece to keep preciously as the original "Fleurs Animees" are disappearing fast!
(Please check my other Grandville, I currently have a lovely collection)
MEASUREMENTS: Length: 11 1/8". Width: 7 3/8".
( 28.5 cm) by ( 19 cm)
CONDITION: In very good condition. Slight beige hue to the paper. Hardly any foxing.
There are 2 Grandville editions in the mid 19th Century, which are considered the original editions: The 1847 edition by G. De Gonet, and the 1867 edition by Garnier Freres.
Will be shipped "Registered Airmail" from Paris, including insurance and signature at delivery. * * * * * * * * * * MORE ORIGINAL GRANDVILLE PRINTS IN MY FINE ART/Antique CATEGORY* * * * * * *
