[Gypsies stopped outside a tavern]
[Gypsies stopped outside a tavern] Vous qui prenez plaisir en leurs paroles / Gardez vos blanc, vos testons, et pistolles.
Callot f. [c.1625] Bit later.
Etching, sheet 125 x 235mm (5 x 9¼"). Trimmed and tipped into album sheet.
Gypsies outside a tavern; fortune-tellers in middle-ground; figures climbing into the tavern through a window; others running away with stolen goods in background. One of a set of four plates depicting gypsies (then known as 'Egyptians', from which the word derives) by Jacques Callot (1592-1635), one of the greatest seventeenth century printmakers. The text seems to suggest that those who take pleasure in the entertainment provided by gypsies should be careful with their possessions- including their guns. British Museum cataloguing for the series suggests that it was produced after Callot returned to his native Nancy from Florence (where he spent several years) in 1621. A preparatory drawing for one of the set (now in the Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg) bears a watermark indicating the paper was from Lorraine.

Plate from a set by Jacques Callot depicting episodes from the Passion, designed in Florence and engraved between 1619 and 1624.

One, mounted on card for use as a fan, can be seen held aloft by a spectator seated on the right side of the volute which forms the border.
