Le Trait Dangereux

Le Trait Dangereux  is a superb black and white etching and burin on paper, realized in 1742 by  J.F. Poletnich ,  after François Boucher .

A beautiful woman is unsheathing an arrow and is wrapped by a dramatic drapery: you can breathe a Neoclassic air.

With inscriptions of the authors on the sides, the title engraved in capital letters on the lower margin at the center. " Paris chez Basam " is the inscription pointing where to buy the artwork at the time.

In good conditions, except for a diffused foxing above all on the margins and a usual yellowing of the paper, this original print has preserved all its beauty, charisma, and amazing lifetime impressions. Including a cardboard passepartout, cm 67.5 x 55.

A copy before letters is preserved at the Louvre Museum in Paris.

Le Trait Dangereux is a superb black and white etching and burin on paper, realized in 1742 by J.F. Poletnich , after François Boucher .

A beautiful woman is unsheathing an arrow and is wrapped by a dramatic drapery: you can breathe a Neoclassic air.

With a very wise tone calibration, and a deep and vibrant black, the black obtained by the burin, the composition is made with full mastery of the artistic technique and a typical sensuality of XVIII-century artworks.

With inscriptions of the authors on the sides, the title engraved in capital letters on the lower margin at the center. " Paris chez Basam " is the inscription pointing where to buy the artwork at the time.

In good conditions, except for a diffused foxing above all on the margins and a usual yellowing of the paper, this original print has preserved all its beauty, charisma, and amazing lifetime impressions. Including a cardboard passepartout, cm 67.5 x 55.
