Fine original engraving by the renowned Victorian French caricature artist JJ Grandville from his Les Fleurs Animees series.. Published and edited by Garnier Freres, Paris in 1867.

Entitled 'Pois de Senteur' (Sweet Pea) it cleverly depicts a young woman dressed as a flower.. in a gown of vines and purple flowers, thirstily swigging down water from a large watering can, while her dry companions pray for rain as they wilt in the heat. A wonderful piece of Victorian whimsy.

Les Fleurs Animees were delightful drawings of flowers disguised as lovely young maidens.

This is an original hand colored engraving from 1867 and NOT a modern reprint.

Signed in the print Grandville del and Ch. Geoffroy sc.

Measuring 10 1/2" x 6 3/4" it has some age discoloration to the margins and a faint water mark lower left which will frame out, and is in good Antique condition.

French caricature artist JJ Grandville was actually born Jean Ignace Isador
Gerard (1803-47).
