Ten lithographs in original wrappers, sheets each approx 365 x 270mm (14¼ x 10½"). Collector's stamp of [?]Paul and Véronique Sanchez on verso of each (probably variant of L.3289.
Ten lithographs of 20? after drawings by Théodore Géricault (1791 - 1824) and published shortly after his death. Subjects include military and oriental costume studies, fighting bulls, the philosopher Helvetius presenting his son to Voltaire, and a fragment of Michelangelo's 'Last Judgment'. After Géricault's death at the age of 32, his works were auctioned in a sale which contained around 220 paintings and an estimated 1600-1800 drawings and watercolours. Géricault sold very little in his lifetime, and so he owned most of his work at the time of his death. The drawings reproduced here were probably purchased at the auction by Blaisot. While he had little financial success in his lifetime, Géricault's postuhumous influence was on the likes of Delacroix and Courbet was great.

Etching, 205 x 165mm. 8 x 6½".
The fine wrought-iron gate to 4 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea. By Theodore Casimir Roussel (1847 - 1926), English painter and etcher of French birth. He was born and educated in France and settled in England in 1878, when he quickly established a reputation. In 1885 he was introduced to James McNeill Whistler, his neighbour in Chelsea, London, and in consequence a lifelong friendship was formed. In 1888 Whistler introduced him to the techniques of etching and drypoint. As Roussel was a member of Whistler’s London circle his work was influenced by the latter in style and choice of subject-matter. Scarce.

Designed & Engraved by Theodore Lane.
[n.d. c.1820] London, Pubd. by Thos. Mc.Lean, 26, Haymarket.
Coloured etching. 349 x 254mm. 13¾" x 10".
Theodore Lane (1800-1828), was apprenticed to the miniature painter John Barrow, with whom he studied watercolour portraits and miniatures, exhibiting at the Royal Academy from 1819. His real talent, however, lay in his depiction of humorous subjects; a series of thirty-six subjects designed and etched by him, entitled The Life of an Actor, was published in 1825. Lane also etched a number of sets of satirical and comic prints of sporting and social life, and he became well-known for his caricatures of George IV and Queen Caroline. He turned to oil painting in 1825, and within two years was exhibiting work at the Royal Academy. Lane died at the young age of twenty-eight when he fell through a skylight.

chez Gihaut b.ard des Italiens N.5
Lithograph, printed area 180 x 180mm (7 x 7"). Collector's stamp of [?]Paul and Véronique Sanchez verso (probably variant of L.3289).
Illustration of Lord Byron's poem 'The Bride of Abydos'. Specifically, the scene corresponds with Canto 2, verse X and the lines 'I said I was not what I seem'd;/ And now thou see'st my words were true'. Salim throws his cloak aside, revealing himself as a dashing pirate, and reveals to Zuleika that she is not his sister. From a set of six lithographs illustrating Byron, by Théodore Géricault (1791-1824) and Eugène Lami (1800-90), of which two were by Lami alone. Prior to 1822, Géricault had been able to live without much thought to the saleability of his works owing to a comfortable annuity he received following the death of his mother. However, the loss of part of his fortune in 1822 required him to produce work designed to appeal to dealers and collectors, with illustrations of exotic literature such as Byron falling into this category.

Two horses wearing saddlecloths canter on a path towards the right, the one in the foreground is unmounted, held by the reins of the rider on the other horse. This print is from the only edition printed by Rodwell and Martin, issued as No. 6 in the series, 'Various Subjects drawn from life on Stone', known as the 'English Series', 1821. Despite their commercial failure in England at the time, Gericault's 'English Series' is now considered to have been of the greatest importance in the development of lithography as an art form during the first half of the nineteenth century. Due to the comparitively small number of impressions printed before the stones were effaced, exampes of Gericault's lithographs from this series are now exteremelty rare and have always been amongst the most sought after of his original printed works.
