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 fist state before the number.
Flattened diagonal fold top left corner, otherwise fine.
On watermarked laid paper, full plate border and margins.
At left top fragment of the interlaced 'C's watermark as called for early impressions of het first state.( Read Lieure)
Seated old woman, turned to left, dressed in rags, warming her hands over a brazier; a cat rests in her lap while another lies at her feet and licks it paw; on white ground; first state, before plate number. c.1622/23 Etching
