Madame Gamelin, Femme de l’Auteur (Portrait of the wife of the artist) 1779



Jacques Gamelin
1738 – Carcassonne – 1803

Etching. Size of sheet: 20.8 x 16.7 cm. Watermark: Remains of a Fleur de Lys.

Literature: Baudicour 27., I.F.F. 77.

Very fine impression with small margins around and fine plate tone with remains of plate dirt in the plate’s edges.

In some parts especially the head and the cushion, some monotype like printing. Like the other portrait of his son a very vivid and painterly use of the needle is visible.
