"Louis Binet: Lavis Illustration Project"Given the technique and the subject, I think that the BINET signature corresponds to Louis BINET (1744-1800), whose Bénézit tells us that he was a pupil of Beauvarlet and devoted himself particularly to illustration, Restif de la Bretonne. Here, the size of the drawing must be on the scale of the engraving, the eighteenth particularly fond of those small formats of books that hid easily in clothes, especially when they were "naughty"! We know that it will illustrate page 46 of volume 2 and it carried this legend: "it tried to support a young woman who appeared expiring ..." Drawing in the wash of gray with a highlight of white 9 X 6 cm, view Of marie-louise 12,5 X 8 cm, in a delightful carved and gilded wooden frame 20,5 X 16 cm approximately slightly posterior of House Badois street of Miromesnil renowned for its frames of very high quality. The photos taken in the sun, the white trains that we see are reflections of my polo! More pictures and more items in our shops in Pau and Biarritz and on our website: galerielhoste.com.
