PIERROT PORTANT SON DEJEUNER and PIERROT TROUBLE DANS SON REPAST

Decamps, Alexandre (After). PIERROT PORTANT SON DEJEUNER and PIERROT TROUBLE DANS SON REPAST. Two etchings by Leenhof after paintings by Descamps. Each 11 5/8 x 8 inches; 295 x 203 mm. Published in L'Art, circa 1870-80. In excellent condition, with full margins. Strange and somewhat disturbing works which picture Pierrot as a young man with apparent Downs Syndrome. In the first print, dressed as a comedia dell'arte Pierrot in a white chemise with large tufted buttons hanging loosely over white trousers, he passes through a fiels of wheat, a windmill behind him, carrying his lunch, including a bottle of wine in a basket over his arm. In the second, while seated against a tree in a clearing in the wood, eating from the basket, he is startled by a hare.
