"Funny Fiction: Animal Gouache: La Cour Du Pacha, 19thc"Gouache on paper, probably from one of these albums of collectors in the 19th century (we see that it was glued to the back and cut out), small, almost a miniature: 15cm x 9cm. Represents, in a humorous register in the manner of Granville, the Court of a Pasha of the Middle East, each of the servants and courtiers is a representative of animal diversity.
Superbly constructed and painted, it is a small rarity, but a great curiosity.
The previous owner's chisel massacred the signature and the date, circa 1875 ... see last photo, but my clients will certainly be able to recognize the artist ....
Condition: overall good, but small tear at the edge, and small hole , hardly visible.
