Artist Carle Vernet (1758-1836) was known for his drawings of horses and his satirical artwork of everyday street scenes. This aquatint lithograph of Vernet's street vendor, No. 6 "La March. de de Cerises" was engraved by Philibert-Louis Debucourt (1755-1832). The title loosely translates as "the merchant selling cherries." The French on the painting indicates that the original work was done by Carle Vernet in Paris at the house of Ch. Bance, No. 10 JJ Rousseau Street; it was engraved by Debucourt. There are other French phrases which I have not been able to decipher. This framed print measures 17 ½" x 21 ½" (including frame). The print alone measures approx. 10 ½" x 14 ¼". It is in very good condition with no spots, foxing or stains. The frame is not original to the print, but is tastefully made.
