Boitard Invenit. N. Vasseur sculp.
A Paris chez Basset rue St. Jacques. [n.d. c.1750.]
Pair of etchings and engravings, very scarce. Plate 321 x 215mm (12¾ x 8½"). Slight creasing; unknown ink lines etched on the sails in 'retour'.
A pair of love scenes as the sailors bids his beloved goodbye as he prepares to go to sea; and his joyful return bearing gifts of money and a watch; the Royal Standard seen behind on the carriage. Engravings after Louis Philippe Boitard (1733-67, fl.), French-born printmaker based in London and frequently considered one of the finest satirists of his day. Probably copied from the pair engraved by Thomas Booth and published in London in 1744.
