One of his most known series. A masterwork etched by Callot in Nancy. He expressed beautifully the physiognomy of these unfortunate people whose misery does not stop instincts, and whose faces reflect both fatigue and sufrance, envy and anger.
Excellent impression of the second state with the number.
On laid paper, trimmed on plate border.
With two corners tipped on a support sheet.
Man wearing hat and coat in rags, left arm resting on walking stick, almost seen from behind, turned to left; on white ground;.
Original Callot etching, no copy.
