Mademoiselle Parisot.
Mademoiselle Parisot.
Painted by A.W.Devis. Engraved by I.R.Smith Mezzotinto Engraver to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.
London Published as the Act directs March 11 1797 by A.W.Devis.
Mezzotint printed in colour, fine with open letters; platemark 610 x 380mm. Wormholes lower right. Few minor repairs.
Rose Parisot (c.1775-1837), French opera singer and ballerina, 'celebrated for the scantiness of her draperies' (Frankau). Parisot made her debut in Paris in 1789, and moved to London in 1796 (this print was published the following year). Her sheer costumes, which often exposed one breast, caused scandal, as recorded in many satirical prints of the 1790s. The Bishop of Durham denounced Parisot's costumes as 'indecent', and after an address to the House of Lords in 1798 certain adjustments were made. Her celebrated career ended in 1807, after which she married a Soho florist. Engraved by the celebrated mezzotint engraver John Raphael Smith and published by the portrait painter Arthur William Devis (1762-1822), from whose portrait the engraving is made. After a decade working in India, Devis struggled to establish himself in London in the late 1790s, but by 1800 he was in dire financial straits, and was finally imprisoned in 1804.
