Two unidentified small wash drawings. Hubert François? Gravelot.

Two unidentified small wash drawings.

N.p: n.d. [ca. 1738?].

Each signed, possibly in anoher hand, lower left, in ink, “Gravelot”. 1 vols. 9.3 x 7.4 cm. The two matted together and framed. Both drawing slightly toned, but very good. Item #263095

The first illustration, of a Monkey addressing a Lion and a Wolf, is almost certainly from Gravelot’s English period (1733-1746) and could well be a preliminary sketch for Gay's FABLES; yet the second drawing, depicting a female figure driving a chariot, displays an allegorical style reminiscent in style and theme to his illustratons for ICONOLOGIE PAR FIGURES (ca. 1789).
