This large print depicts a fortune teller being pick-pocketed. The fortune-teller is reading the the palm of a young-man. Soldiers & other men are sitting at the table drinking. A child carrying a basket is stealing from a cloaked-man who pick-pockets the gypsy fortune-teller.

The design is based on the oil-painting by Valentin de Boulogne, "The Fortune Teller" (Toledo Museum of Art, USA). That painting resembles a famous, and much-copied by printmakers, painting ca. 1615 by Simon Vouet of a similar scene

Print made by Jean Ganière, ca 1640.

Condition: Cut within border (see above). Either stuck-down,or printed, on thick paper. Mounted by bottom two corners onto sheet of old laid-paper with lettering-watermark. Central vertical-crease, tear/crease bottom-right & other areas of surface-damage. (see photos).
