Original French Grandville Engraving Angels and Demons 1844.
From the French satirical book 'Un Autre Monde' comes this wonderful and very rare engraving by JJ Grandville (1803-1847). It is plate #197.
Entitled 'Anges et Demons' it typifies the opposing influences in Paris in the early part of the 19th century. Good and Evil.
I particularly love the light shade as I have one exactly the same in my home.
With touches of color it is a very bold and unique piece.
Un-signed by Grandville but definitely by him it bears only the letters RGT lower right and was issued in 1844 in Paris by Fournier.
With a small corner bend upper right and a few foxed spots it is in very good Antique condition.
I am listing two more wonderful color engraving from the same series NN443 and NN454.
