Charles-Melchior Descourtis after Nicolas Antoine Taunay Pastel Aquatint engraving. His works are in galleries all over Europe and America. This one is absolutely delightful as it depicts a loan drummer boy playing a jig for the dressed up dogs and gentleman to dance and entertain the guests. I love the monkey sitting on the back of another dog. The frame on this piece is original to the work but does show wear consistent with age.
Circa late 1700's to early 1800's
