Portrait of Antoine Bonnier d'Alco (1750-1799), a French politician and diplomat. Below the portrait a frieze depicting the assasination of Bonnier.
Etching (frieze) and aquatint (portrait) on wove paper, sheet size 324 x 496 mm., platemark 285 x 440 mm., aquatint by Charles Levachez (active 1760-1820), etching by Jean Duplessi-Bertaux (1750-1818) after his own design, 1800.
An interesting sheet, mixing two graphic techniques for very different effects. In good condition, the margins soiled and creased, with small tears, but the image area clean and fresh, with only an occasional small stain.
