Description

An accomplished printmaker and social satirist, Debucourt matched wits with British caricaturists as revolutions roiled at home and abroad. While Paris prepared for a bloodbath, Debucourt pictured the swells admiring each other in the Palais Royale gardens. Rowlandson's color aquatint of the satisfied crowd in London's lush Vauxhall Gardens provided inspiration. Medium: etching, engraving, and aquatint printed in colour.
