Peacock of the Night VRP20 $65
Each print measures
approximately 7 ¼ inches wide by 10 ¼ inches long
This is another delightful work by that master of whimsy, Amedee Varin who also contributed to the better known “Fleurs Animees”. Varin (1818-1883) was an artist and illustrator and a member of the illustrious Beaux Art School in Paris. Similar to the Fleurs Animees, but personifying butterflies instead of flowers, each print includes a humorous phrase or title, very much in the genre of the day exemplified by the work of Grandville.
It is a rare work indeed, almost never appearing on the print market, and in excellent condition, with delicate hand coloring and delightfully whimsical illustrations. Here we offer original prints, now about 160 years old, and not later reproductions. Each print measures approximately 7 ¼ by 10 ¼ inches & comes with a copy of the title page.
