Les Ecrevisses a Longchamps (The Crayfish at Longchamps) -  DELACROIX

Les Ecrevisses a Longchamps (The Crayfish at Longchamps)
Lithograph, 1822, Delteil / Strauber 37, (ii/II); edition unknown. 7 7/8 x 12 1/8 in. Unsigned. This is a fine impression as published in "Le Miroir." The margins are uneven and are trimmed fairly close on the top and both sides. There's a tiny tear on the left edge just into the image and traces of foxing. This rare, early work is a satire on "Ultra Politics" and the artist is possibly the figure in the left foreground, blowing on the whistle.

Man at Arms (Un Homme d'Armes) -  DELACROIX

Man at Arms (Un Homme d'Armes)
Etching, 1833, Strauber/Delteil 17 (i/IV); edition unknown. 4 1/4 x 2 5/8 in. Signed in the plate, upper right. This is a superb impression of the rare first state before all letters. This is the full sheet printed on laid paper with a J WHATMAN watermark. The condition is fine apart from a tiny hole in the margin at left and an old narrow hinge running the length of the edge of the sheet at right, verso. Ex-collection: J. Michelin (Lugt 1490).

The Blacksmith (Un Forgeron) -  DELACROIX

The Blacksmith (Un Forgeron)
Etching and aquatint, 1833, Delteil / Strauber 19 (v/VI); edition unknown. 8 7/8 x 6 3/8 in. Initialed in the plate, upper right. This is a superb impression with wide margins. The condition is excellent. This, the fifth state, was printed by Delâtre and published by Cadart & Luquet for the the Société des Aquafortistes (June, 1867). A painting and drawing exists of this subject and the copperplate is now in the Bibliothèque Nationale.
