31. [French]

Follower of CALLOT, Jacques

Festival on market square.

Ca. 1620-1670

Etching, 25,5 x 32,2 cm, laid paper with watermark (mountains; not in Bricquet), unsigned (foxing, two old repairs at upper edge, repaired tear at left edge, horizontal folding line at centre).

Under passe-partout.

Extremely rare anonymous etching depicting an Italian town square with at its centre a palazzo decorated with frescoes. As the figures on the right foreground are barely visible, it is possibly a proof impression. The general stage-like composition and elongated figures recalls the Italian etchings in the oeuvre of Jacques Callot. The only known copy.
