Etching/engraving on laid paper, by Claude-Augustin Duflos after Jean Baptiste Bénard, published ca. 1750 by Jean-Baptiste Crépy, with an eight-line caption in French by Jeson, sheet size 375 x 275 mm., cropped within platemark, a sharp crease in the caption below the image (from previous framing?), margins faintly stained.
A nice impression of this plate in which a nanny cares for three children in a kitchen. The nanny is talking with the girl standing in front of the fireplace, holding up a blanket, on the left a little boy holds up a spoon to the baby in the nanny's arms.
Literature: LeBlanc 187. According to the British Museum, this print was advertised in 'Mercure' of October 1759.
