FINE HAND-COLORED LITHOGRAPH, “LES ANTIQUAIRES”, signed in the plate “L. Boilly”.

n.p: Delpech, n.d.

Louis Leopold Boilly. Image approximately 9 x 7 1/2 inches, with margins, 14 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches overall. 1 vols. A few almost imperceptable nicks, without loss, in lower margin, slight wrinkling in upper margin, away from image, but overall fine Item #12709

A delightful caricature of five elderly men closely examining, with varying expressions, small items from a box in the foreground. A famous image. Boilly (1761-1845) was a long-lived and prolific painter and engraver, achieving particular reknown with the publication, in 1823, of “Grimaces”, a series of witty lithographs, of which this was probably one. A DELIGHTFUL AND TIMELESS IMAGE.
