January.(1) Interior of a dining room where a husband and wife are seen, people of distinction seated at the table, served by a maître d'hôtel and a cupbearer. This room adjoins a kitchen where a woman holds a frying pan on the fire.Aquarius and its celestial sign can be seen at the top of the room, towards the back.186. February.(2) To the left of the print we see a seated old man warming himself at a fireplace where a woman is approaching, spinning with a spindle, having a chaplain hanging from her belt; a servant follows her bringing wood. Pisces and their sign are seen in the middle of the top. Externally we can see, at the back of the right, a lumberjack who is felling wood.187. March.(3) A man and a woman are busy pruning the vine. In the middle of the top appears Aries and its astronomical sign.188. April.(4) In the middle of the front of this piece we see a shepherd sitting talking with a shepherdess who is weaving flowers and a young girl who is picking them; beyond a herd is scattered. In the middle of the top appears the Taurus and its astronomical sign.189. May.(5) In the middle of the front of this piece we see a young girl sitting facing front who sings to the accompaniment of the cittern.She is between two other young people, one of whom is holding a bouquet in one hand and a crown of flowers in the other.Gemini appears in the middle of the top as well as their celestial sign.190. June.(6) On the front of this print we are busy shearing the flock, an operation carried out by a young woman assisted by two shepherds who bring or bring her two sheep. In the middle of the top is Cancer and its astronomical sign.191. July.(7) The right of this piece shows two men busy mowing. Leo is seen in the middle of the top accompanied by its astronomical sign.192. August(8) Four men take care of the harvest work on the front of this piece; three saw the wheat and another tied it into sheaves. In the middle of the top we see the Virgin and her astronomical sign.195. September.(9) Plowing and sowing the land. In the foreground we notice a farmer who, walking to the right, sows a field. To the right of the background we notice another one driving his plow on a patch of earth. In the middle of the top appears Scorpio (*) and its astronomical sign.(*) It is very inappropriate that Scorpio appears in this month and that in October that of Libra appears; there is obviously a transposition of the constellations(...)196. October.(10) The harvest. The grapes are brought and crushed into a vat in the middle of the front, and the wine is drawn off; three men take care of it. The surplus from the operation is done at the bottom. In the middle of the top we see Libra and its astro..

From the set: "History of Genesis"State I/II before addressNice print, cut at the copper limit, remnants of old mounts on the back, some small brown stains and thinning in the borders on the back.Bartsch: 25Carries three collector's brandsLugt.1731 ( and L.1701 ):" L. LÉPINGLE († around 1903), merchant, Brussels. Prints.L. Lépingle, a former ironmonger, owned a collection of ancient and modern prints which was purchased, perhaps only in part, by the print dealer Bihn, of Paris.The collector used, in addition to the mark reproduced, a stamp offering his initials in Roman characters (We have not yet encountered the third mark, cited by Lugt in 1956, offering the initials of the collector in Roman characters Romans), and a third giving his name in full.The Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg holds a set of twenty-two prints by Ignace Joseph Claussin after de Boissieu, eleven of them jointly bearing the marks L.1731 and L.1701, and two among them the marks L.1672b, L.1731 and L.4169 (archives of the Custodia Foundation, letter dated October 24, 2013).In several sales catalogs, the mark L.1731 was reported on prints accompanied by another unidentified mark, an initial L, stamped in blue-green ink; this has sometimes been identified as L.1701 (for example sale 2009, September 16, London, Christie's, n° 86, Rembrandt, The Flight into Egypt or online sale 2018, November 28 to December 6, Christie's, n° ° 99, Rembrandt, The Last Supper), or else described without mentioning the Lugt number (sale 2009, April 8, London, Christie's, no. 49, Rembrandt, Self-portrait with Saskia; sale 2004, November 25, Haarlem, Bubb Kuyper, no. 3527, W. Panneels, San Sebastian). This mark L.1701 is probably related to the collection of L. Lépingle. So many prints where the two marks, L.1701 and L.1731, appear together lead us to think that they may be linked.Note that this mark had been reported on a drawing given to Donato Creti (1671-1749) in the catalog of the Galerie Prouté in 1975, without specifying its color (cat. Prouté, Catalog “Dandré-Bardon”, Paris 1975, #8).The L.1731 mark may be affixed in blue, blue-green and/or red."Lugt:4172 (This is a larger size variant of the L.4171 mark): "CHARLES-FRÉDÉRIC MEWÈS (Strasbourg 1858-1914), architect, London. Ornamental and architectural drawings and prints .Charles Mewès (sometimes written Mewes), originally from a Jewish family in the Baltic countries, was the son of a merchant, Frédéric Mewès, and Julie Laure Schutzenberger. The family left Alsace in 1870 during the Prussian occupation. Charles entered the office of Jean-Louis Paul (1837-1920), a famous architect and teacher at the Beaux-Arts in Paris, at the age of twenty. In 1885, he competed for the Prix de Rome and graduated the following year. In 1900, he joined forces with the British architect Arthur Joseph Davis (1878-1951), his former classmate at the École des Beaux-Arts, and formed the “Mewès et Davis” agency.

Complete suite of six framed prints (Blum: 1184-1189; Duplessis: 34-39) in a homogeneous edition, all with margins or margins with the exception of the Festin cut at the limit of the border. -The Prodigal Son leaves the paternal home Skillfully restored transverse tear, fine dubbing, tiny brown stain. -The Prodigal Son in a bawdy-house, uncovered version State II / III before the modifications on the panties of the man in the kitchen and the recovery on the hand of the Prodigal Son to make the board more "decent". On this piece the mention "du Roy"as well as the address of the publisher undoubtedly erased because of its scabrous character and re-established in the last version considered more suitable. Two old traces of brown ink in the most nimble places. -The Prodigal Son keeps the pigs Tiny brown spot in the border. -The Return of the Prodigal Son -The Prodigal Son changes his clothes Two traces of pencil in the sky and on the column. -The Feast of the Return The parable of the Prodigal Son is the subject of almost the entire chapter XV of the Gospel according to Saint Luke. Bosse respects the letter but he nevertheless watered down the end as was previously the case with many other artists very inspired by this theme, such Dürer, Beham, Mérian (who was one of the masters of the Bosse) or Callot whose slightly earlier sequel maintains a discreet relationship with it.

MONOGRAMMISTE MT ( TREU MARTIN ?) ( ACTIF ENTRE 1541 ET 1543 )

Proof cut to the limit of copper.Two small restored holes, one at the level of the father's belt, the other on the coat of one of his brothers.(On the back: mark? Not identified)Bartsch : 13The identification of this monogramist happens to be problematic. Christ the First, in his Dictionary of Monograms (1750, reprinted 1972, p. 231), attaches to the name of Martin Treu the monogram formed by the letters M. T. He thus declares Martin Treu engraver, apparently basing his explanation on a comparison arbitrary between the two letters and the aforementioned name. The engravings bearing this monogram are for the most part dated, which allows us to locate the artist's activity between 1540 and 1543. Following Christ, the identity of the monogramist, although arbitrarily established, and underlined as such in the biographical notes of artists, will however be maintained. We have no documentation on his place of birth or residence. G. K. Nagler (Neues allgemeines Künstler-Lexikon, 21st vol, 1835-1852, pp. 290-293) integrates the engraver into the 'little masters' and proposes Nuremberg as a city of anchorage. In the absence of real references to a place of activity, A. Andresen, following on from Nagler, evokes on the other hand, a probable belonging to the Saxon school (Die Monogrammisten und diejenigen bekannten und unbekannten Künstler aller Schulen, IVe vol ., 1871, pp. 687-689). According to him, Treu's engravings would recall the style of Hans Brosamer (circa 1500-circa 1552) and even sometimes attempt to imitate that of Aldegrever. Bartsch, (IX, p. 68, et seq.), Mentions forty-two works linked to this engraver. He underlines the rarity of good prints and denounces the high price of some. In his work, G. K. Nagler adds two works to the list described by Bartsch, and which Brulliot had declared incomplete in his Dictionary of Monograms (1817, I, n ° 2958). Passavant (1863, IV, p. 52 et seq.) Finds nine additional engravings, to which A.Andresen will add a few tests which had escaped Passavant. The gaps were relatively easy to fill, because the presumed Martin Treu numbered the series; at least in part. Among the most important, we must mention the suite of The dance of the peasants (1542), The dance of the nobles (1542 and 1543, depending on the print), or the parable of the Prodigal Son (1541 and 1543), which is the engraving. dealt with here. A few isolated subjects, such as The Judgment of Solomon (1540), The Wise Virgins (1540) as a pendant to the Mad Virgins, The Peasant Surprising his Wife in the Arms of a Monk (1540) or even a Project for a Dagger with its Sheath ( 1540). The whole fits well with the favorite themes of contemporary engravers.in Cat expo STRASBOURG, The gods like men, 2003 (Palais Rohan) (p. 201)..

Behind each of the children there is an olive branch, at the same time allusion, through the history of the flood and of Noah's ark, to peace but also through holy chrism, of which it is one of the ingredients to carry out the anointings at various times and more particularly at the beginning of Christian life, the symbol of participation in the strength of God.Eight lines in Latin and five in Dutch accompany the image.
