Reference:
Lieure 1927 420 ( I / II )

From : The Gobbi.
This series of deformed dwarfs is responsible for the image of Callot as an artist of grotesque fantasy creatures, reminiscent of Jheronimus Bosch (c.1450-1516) and Pieter Bruegel I (1525 / 30-1569). Contemporary sources testify that groups of dwarfs traveled through Italy and participated in public festivities and public events. In his prints, however, Callot greatly exaggerates the physiognomy of these dwarfs

Jacques Callot ( 1592 - 1635)
Etcher and draughtsman, born Nancy. 1608-1611 in Rome; 1612-1621 in Florence, working for the Medici; in 1621 returned to Nancy, where he settled and married. Died suddenly in 1635. Enormously popular and much copied. From c. 1620 most of his plates were published by his friend Israel Henriet.
