Peint par F. Boucher. Grave par J. Daulle Graveur du Roi 1756.
AParis chés l'Auteur rue du Platre St. Jacques attenant le college de Cornouaille.
Rare pair of engravings, each c.330 x 380mm (13 x 15"), with wide margins.
Two of the nine Muses, the goddesses of classical mythology who inspire the creation of literature and the arts. They are both reclining among clouds, with respectively tambourine and flute and lyre, each accompanied by a winged putto. The two plates reproduce the overdoors executed by François Boucher (1703 - 1770) for Jeanne-Antoinette Poisson, Marquise de Pompadour (1721 - 1764). Actually the Muses are both misidentified by engraver Daullé; they are in fact Terpsichore ('Erato') and Polymnia ('Clio'). The pair were advertised in 'Mercure', October 1756. Madame de Pompadour was the official maîtresse-en-titre (mistress) of King Louis XV from 1745 to 1750; her coat of arms to lower margins.

Etching, good impression, platemark 275 x 365mm (10¾ x 14¼") very large margins.
