The Skein-Winder (fabric-making). Beautiful Levenin engraving c1845.

by Hamon Jean-Louis

Fine antique print of The Skein Winder, c1868. This is a lovely engraving from a famous painting of ladies involved in the traditional occupation, during the time of Roman emperors.

Original steel engraving by J.C. Thévenin (Jean-Charles Beinvenu Gaspard Thévenin) (1819-1869) from the painting by French genre painter, J.L. Hamon c1868. Jean-Louis Hamon (1821-1874) was a French painter and designer. He was appointed drawing-master at a religious seminary at Ploermel, Brittany before he had received any art instruction. He sought and obtained a grant for 500 francs to go to Paris to study. He was trained by Delaroche and subsequently by Charles Gleyre.

With narrow upper margin, as issued, it is otherwise in good condition. The Skein-Winder appeared in The Art Journal, published in London in 1868. This engraving is further enhanced by the addition of fine later hand-colour.

Page size is 230mm  x 325mm (13 1/4 inches x 12 3/4 inches).
