Image size: 170x125 mm
Edition: Size of edition unknown; scarce – Unsigned
Original etching and engraving by Eugène Leguay (b.1822) after a painting by Charles Antoine Coypel of the actress Adrienne Lecouvreur. Printed by F. Chardon on wove paper, and published by the revue L'Artiste. With printed credits within the wide platemark (280x 175mm) to publisher, artist, etcher, printer, and title. An interesting comparison with Pierre-Imbert Drevet's 1730 engraving of the same subject. The margins of the sheet outside the platemark are slightly foxed, which could be easily masked behind a mount. Ref: Sanchez & Seydoux 1864-1 Condition: Good, see description.
