Four Early 19th Century French Ink and Gouache Drawings

$3,650per set

About

This lovely set of drawings in the style of Francois Boucher depict children in nature. Done in ink with white gouache highlights creating a monochromatic yet dramatic statement on the art of the drawn line. The formal decorative drawn frame border also adds to the images impact. These images are most likely done as cartoons created to facilitate tapestry work for chair backs or set paintings done for over door paneling etc etc. The work is accomplished and well studied. They make a great statement as they can be used in pairs on either side of a door way or window system or as a large grouping of four. The paper that the images are drawn on is an interesting brown paper and has been laid down on board. All four a framed in old vintage french gilt frames and all the drawings have full or remnants of 20's printed antique store labels on the back with old ink annotations all in french ( see photo 7). These photos do not do the drawings justice since the photos are darker then actually seen. The images are more like in terms of color photo 6, 9 and 10.
