Pair of engraved portraits of François Quesnay.Paris , 1747 & 1767 Stock Code: 110063
NotesThe first of these two portraits, engraved by J.G. Will after a painting by J. Chevallier in 1745, depicts Quesnay seated, surrounded by books and papers. That of François, engraved in 1767 after a painting by Frédoux, is particularly interesting, employing a variety of artistic styles.
Two framed engravings of François Quesnay, (496 x 360 & 460 x 270 mm). Framed and glazed.
Short tear to the bottom corner of the Will portrait, small wormhole at foot of François engraving, just affecting engraved legend. A fine pair of portraits.
