About this Item: Israel Henriet c.1633, Paris, 1633. Condition: Very Good. Plate 18 from Les Miseres et les Mal-heurs de la Guerre, by Jacques Callot, from the early 17th century. ?Les Grandes Misères de la guerre? are a series of 18 etchings titled in full "Les Misères et les Malheurs de la Guerre". Despite the grand theme of the series, the images are in fact only about 83 mm x 180 mm each, and are called the "large" Miseries to distinguish them from an even smaller earlier set on the same subject. The series, published in 1633, is Callot's best-known work and has been called the first "anti-war statement" in European art. Les Grand Misères depict the destruction unleashed on civilians during the Thirty Years' War; no specific campaign is depicted, but the set inevitably recalls the actions of the army that Cardinal Richelieu sent in 1633 to occupy Callot's native Lorraine before annexing it to France. The series begins with a florid title page, followed by an enrollment parade and a battle scene. Plates 4?8 show bands of the victorious soldiers successively attacking a farm, convent, and coach, and burning a village. In plates 9?14 they are rounded up and subjected to various methods of public torture and execution. Plate 15 shows crippled soldiers in a grand neo-classical hospital, Plate 16 unemployed soldiers dying in the street, and Plate 17 the peasants taking revenge on a group they have captured, killing them with flails. Plate 18 shows an enthroned king distributing rewards to the victorious generals. Jacques Callot (1592-1635) was a baroque printmaker and draftsman from the Duchy of Lorraine (an independent state on the north-eastern border of France, southwestern border of Germany and overlapping the southern Netherlands). He is an important person in the development of the old master print. He made more than 1,400 etchings that chronicled the life of his period - featuring soldiers, clowns, drunkards, Gypsies, beggars, as well as court life. He also etched many religious and military images, and many prints featured extensive landscapes in their background. , Image Size : 72x184 (mm), 2.83x7.24 (Inches), Platemark Size : 82x188 (mm), 3.23x7.40 (Inches), Paper Size : 92x194 (mm), 3.62x7.64 (Inches), Black & White, Etching.
