Jacques Callot ( 1592-1632 ) - Two women in rags - Original
Gravure - Non signé(e) - Ca. 1622

Les Gueux / Les Mendiants
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.

Two women in rags, with the one on the left holding out a spoon to her companion, who holds a small cup in her hands; on white ground;
original Callot etching, no copy.

Lieure 1927 486 II / II
Guaranteed original.
