[Two young servant-girls; one balancing two baskets on her shoulders.]
Anton Forster [pencil signature.]
[Continental, n.d., c.1910-1920.]
Etching on india paper, from a limited edition, signed and numbered '14/100' by the artist in pencil. 155 x 130mm, 6 x 5". Margins lightly spotted; a good impression overall.
The two female subjects in this attractive composition are wearing wooden clogs; this would indicate a Dutch setting. Traditional clogs were often worn for heavy labour, and today they remain in use as protective clothing in agriculture and in some factories and mines. Little seems to be known about the artist, who worked on the Continent around the time of the First World War.

Nicolas Charles Oudinot, 1st Comte Oudinot, 1st Duc de Reggio (1767-1847) was a Marshal of France. At the outbreak of the French Revolution, Oudinot's military career took-off and he rose through the ranks, and in 1800 after great success at the Battle of Monzambano was presented with the sword of honour by Napoleon. He was made Inspector-General of the infantry, and, on establishment of the empire, given the Grand Cross of the Legion díHonneur. It was not until 1809, after his display of brilliant courage at the Battle of Wagram, that he was promoted to the rank of Marshal of France. His later career was not as successful however he was not disgraced and on Napoleonís abdication he rallied to the new government and was made a Peer of France by the Bourbon Restoration.
