About this Item: 1785. Engraving. Proof before dedication, with artist names and title but before dedication and publication line added and title space darkened. Two collectors marks on verso of sheet. In excellent condition with the exception of some limited foxing. Crease on right edge of sheet. Image size: 13 13/16 x 9 3/4 inches. A rare proof impression of this stunning boudoir scene after a miniature by Nicolas Lavreince. Genre painting came to France when the Academy admitted Watteau's "The Pilgrimage to Cythera" in 1717. From that point on a fashion for decorative genre subjects swept the country, influencing an entire generation of French artists. This craze did not subside until after the onset of the Revolution when the frivolous tastes of the aristocratic elite were dispelled and a more sober era descended upon French art. This extremely well executed print by Nicolas de Launay is after a painting by the celebrated Swedish miniaturist Nicolas Lavreince, who built his reputation with paintings of intimate boudoir scenes. In this scene, an elegantly dressed woman seated on a settee in a lavish boudoir gazes longingly at a miniature of her lover, and holds a love letter in the other hand. On the wall above, in an oval portrait, Cupid aims his arrow, though she is already clearly his victim. A little toy dog plays in the foreground, unaware of the sighs and sorrow. From the collection of Frederic R. Halsey, a famous New York print collector, who was active during the latter part of the 19th century. (Lugt 1308). Also from the collection of Cortland Field Bishop (1870-1935) a New York collector, who had a renowned collection of French eighteenth-century prints.

About this Item: Paris, 1820. Engraving on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of a crease in the upper left margin outside the platemark and some small white spots in the image. A wonderful depiction of pre-revolutionary Parisian aristocracy by de Launay after a gouache by Nicolas Lavreince. A perfectly dressed, handsome young man suavely hands off a love letter to his perfectly dressed young sweetheart while he distracts the older woman: mother or aunt who chaperones. It is a wonderful moment that speaks volumes about aristocratic life prior to the revolution. What seems at first a charming and witty deceit also implies a world in which the pursuit of pleasure has become a way of life. In any event, the amorous back-hand takes place in a setting of utmost refinement: the room is a magnificent example of a Louis XVI interior with its massive mirror, elaborate moldings, carvings and furnishings, a harp, inlaid piano and cello. The characters are dressed to a degree, for a musical afternoon, that defies belief by modern standards: the lover who reaches awkwardly to get her precious missive is especially grand, with flowers and feathers in her hair, a dress festooned with garlands of artificial flowers, and rose-topped pointed silk shoes. Everyone exudes elegance and refinement in clothing, manner and gesture. All in all, a superb revelation of a long ago world, perfectly engraved by de Launay from Lavreince's incisive painting.

About this Item: 1784. Engraving. Proof before title and publication details, state ii/iii. In excellent condition with the exception of two mended tears in the upper and lower margins. Image size: 13 7/8 x 16 7/8. A charming scene of an idyllic musical afternoon, by the famous miniature artist Nicolas Lavreince. This is a stunning proof impression of this beautiful print by Varin after Nicolas Lavreince. The scene depicts an elegantly dressed group enjoying a musical afternoon. The seated guitar player and standing woman with a mandolin (?) share an intense gaze. Lavreince (1737-1807) was a Swedish miniature painter who trained and worked in Paris until the onset of the Revolution when he returned to Stockholm. Lavreince's pleasant scene of carefree aristocrats enjoying a day in the country is perfectly translated into print by Varin. In its decorative subject and delicate execution "Le Concert agreeable" embodies the character of Rococo art.

About this Item: A Paris chez Janinet, rue Haute Feuille, No. 5. Et chez Efnauts et Rapilly, rue St. Jacques, a la Ville de Coutances, No. 259, Paris, 1788. Mixed method colour print, printed in yellow, blue, red, pink and black inks from five plates. Two registration marks in plate. In excellent condition with wide margins. Image size: 14 x 11 inches. This is considered one of Janinet's masterpieces. From a series of boudoir scenes executed in collaboration with the painter Nicolas Lavreince, it is an exquisite example of a newly devised method of colour printing Jean Francois Janinet (1752-1814) was one of the most accomplished French engravers of the eighteenth century. His beautiful images are among the most sought after prints on the market and they stand as a testimony to the superior quality of early French colour printing. "In 1771 Janinet began to work in Bonnet's atelier where he soon mastered the techniques of multiple-plate colour printing and chalk-manner engraving. On his own, he refined these processes by 1772 to produce the first colour prints in imitation of watercolour and wash drawings. These prints were executed entirely with specialized engraver's tools and without recourse to aquatint". During his career "Janinet made more than eight hundred prints, including 260 in drawing books, three hundred views, 175 costume and theatrical portraits, fifty-six scenes of the significant events of the Revolution, as well as numerous little round prints for buttons and box tops, few of which survive". Janinet's best work is exemplified in this beautiful print, which was published as part of a series of twelve. The series was executed in collaboration with the celebrated Swedish artist Nicolas Lavreince. In Paris during the latter part of the eighteenth century there developed a fashion for titillating pictures of intimate boudoir scenes. This print is a wonderful example of this trend, as well as a lovely impression of the engraving. "L'Indiscretion" was published by Janinet in 1788 as the third print in his famous collaborative series with Lavreince. Typical of this genre of French printmaking "L'Indiscretion" is set in an extravagant boudoir where two young women fight for the possession of a love letter.
