Jacques Chéreau’s etching, “Landscape with Fishermen,” c1700, after Gaspard Dughet

Jacques Chéreau (aka Chéreau le jeune) (1688–1776)

“Landscape with Fishermen,” c1700, after the painting by Gaspard Dughet (aka Gaspard Poussin; Gaspar Poussin; Le Guaspre; Gasparo Duche; Gaspre) (1615–1675) in the Hessen Kassel Museum (http://altemeister.museum-kassel.de/32675/), published by Jacques Chéreau in Paris.

Etching on laid paper, trimmed around the image borderline and backed with a support sheet.

Size: (sheet) 25.3 x 36.1 cm.

The British Museum offers the following description of this print from an early state before the addition of the artist/publisher’s name and address (“AParis chez Jacques Chereau, Rue St. Jacques, au grand St. Remy”):

“River landscape with two men pulling nets on the right, and man fishing with a rod in the middle” (https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/P_1877-0811-722).

Condition: richly inked, strong early/lifetime impression (based on the quality of line showing no sign of wear to the printing plate), trimmed around the image borderline and laid onto a support sheet of archival (millennium quality) washi paper. The lower-right corner has been replenished with watercolour (an almost invisible restoration).

I am selling this startlingly strong etching after one of the leading 17th century landscape painters, Gaspard Dughet (aka Gaspar Poussin)—an artist whose work was less idealised than that of his teacher, Nicholas Poussin—for AU$194 (currently US$138.91/EUR117.28/GBP105.92 at the time of posting this print) including Express Mail (EMS) postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.

If you are interested in purchasing this very beautiful landscape etching glowing with tonal contrasts, please contact me (oz_jim@printsandprinciples.com) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
