Handgekleurde ets/Handcolored etching: Mother and child [plates 4, 5 from “Zinspelende gedigjes, op de geestige printjes ge-etst door Pieter de Mare…”, 1793] (moeder en kind).
Page with two plates, namely nr. 4 and 5, 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 plates are signed: “C.C. / P.d.M. sc.”. On the left, the mother is sitting on a chair with her child on the lap. On the right, the woman is standing with her child in her arms.
Chalon’s drawings are extremely intimate and cute. These impressions are hand colored, which makes them even more pleasant.
