chez Gihaut, Boulard. des Italiens, No.5. [n.d. c.1822.]
Lithograph. 316 x 420mm (12½ x 16½"). Crease upper left.
From "Etudes de chevaux par Gericault", a series of twelve prints with a titlepage. Géricault asked Léon Cogniet and Volmar to execute the work, and he directed the project, sending work back and making corrections. According to Delteil, impressions of this state are very rare. He also says that the lithograph was executed to a great extent by Léon Cogniet, after Géricault's 'Horses going to a fair' in 'The English Set', published in 1821 by Rodwell and Martin.
