more18th-Century colored print of a Black Tamarin Monkey by Jean Baptiste Audebert. Beautiful antique mirrored frame measuring 20 x 26"
Paris, 1797-1800, Color intaglio print with added hand-color, image measures approximately 14 1/2 x 9 inches on sheet size 20 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches. Light scattered foxing, faint toning to edges; otherwise very good condition. An exquisitely detailed image of a black Tamarin Monkey. from Histoire Naturelle des Singes et des Makis by Jean Baptiste Audebert, published between 1797-1800. This was Audebert's first individually issued publication, and he lavished attention on the plates which were printed with a color printing method he apparently devised, incorporating stipple engraving. S. Peter Dance notes in "The Art of Natural History" that "zoological art in France an overall uniformity and distinction that was not equalled elsewhere."
A beautiful piece that will add to your décor! less
