[Illustration to 'Pygmalion' by J.J. Rousseau] Pigmalion.
C. Eisen inv.
A Paris chez Basan
Engraving, platemark 150 x 95mm (6 x 3¾") large margins.
Probably one of a set of six illustrations to Rousseau's dramatization of the Pygmalion story after designs by Charles Eisen (1720-78), painter, draughtsman and illustrator. It was through his drawings, engraved to illustrate nearly 400 books, that Eisen's reputation was chiefly established. These also included editions of Lucretius, Ovid, Tacitus, Virgil, Boccaccio, Ariosto, and Erasmus. Although unsigned, this engraving is probably by Emmanuel de Ghendt.
