Genre, Animals, The Falconers
Photogravure (Helio gravure) after the painting by Eugene Fromentin (1820 1876).
Falcons have successfully hit a hare. Two Arabian hunters on Arabian horses with falcons on their fists are looking on as the hit hare is secured from two more falcons. Very attractive Arabian hunting scene.
The appearance of this photogravure is as soft and velvety as a mezzotint.
Condition: Excellent. Ample margins. Very clean.
