Etching, image size: 10 x 7 1/2 inches, 1844, plate signed


"L'optique"   Peep Show

This is a very rare early French genre painting depicting a traveling vendor with his peep show in a country setting, with a mother and her children viewing the display titled "Le Vrai Jesus". Oil on canvas, 30 x 25 inches, overall frame size 41 x 36 inches, c. 1780s. This painting is unsigned, but it is exquisitely painted; the style and subject very reminiscent of the work of Louis Leopold Boilly (1761-1845). The painting was relined on aluminum and has some areas of inpainting, mostly the bottom edge and upper right, but overall is really quite presentable.


1865-1928, American

This is a very fine etching by Warren Davis, image size 7 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches, printed in an edition of 150, signed within the plate, with the title and edition in pencil below the image. This etching is in pristine condition, printed on a cream colored watermarked Rives paper with ample margins. Warren Davis studied at the Art Students League in New York and became known for his etchings of idealized female figures, many of which were used on the covers of Vanity Fair and Life magazines.
