Page with plate 6, designed by female painter Christina Chalon and etched by Pieter de Mare. De Mare collected the genre compositions by Chalon, he etched them in different states, and employed them in: “Zinspelende gedigjes, op de geestige printjes ge-etst door Pieter de Mare…”. The small plate is signed on the bottom: “Chr.Chalon f. / P.d.M. sc.”. A boy with a whip in his right hand is dragging a cart on which a young girl is sitting.
Chalon’s drawings are extremely intimate and cute. These impressions are hand colored, which makes them even more pleasant.
Hand-colored etchings on paper; plate: 68 x 92 mm, total: 200 x 114 mm; the surface somewhat scratched; smudges on the bottom right. Published in Amsterdam by Willem van Vliet 1793.
