Method of acquisition: Given (1941) by Clarke, Louis Colville Gray


19th century
Production date: 44567 AD 1803


Pub. June 1. 1803 by JAs Green. No. 46, Rathbone Place, London. 'JAs' indicates James Green, most likely James Green, 1771-1834, painter and draughtsman. 'Un Meunier' of this series is engraved at lower left, 'J. Green delt', suggesting that Green was the draughtsman and possibly the publisher, but not the printmaker. There are impressions of 'Un Meunier' and 'Un Postillon' from this series (along with additional figures, 'Une Poissonniere' and 'Une Fruitiere') in the collection of Musee Carnavalet, Paris [accessed 13/05/21]. Here the printmaker is given as 'John Green, c.1775-c.1820, but these are the dates for John Hippisley Green, who was based in Oxford not London and who always signed as 'J.H. Green'.
