DUELING DWARVES

Catalogue Note

In the present work, the artist repeats two figures from Jacques Callot's series of engravings of hunchbacks and intersperses them with other similar figures to create an amusing and playful composition.  The figures borrowed from Callot are the second figure from left brandishing two small swords and the second figure from right with the large potbelly.  (See P. Choné, Jacques Callot 1592 - 1635, Nancy 1992, p. 229, nos. 179 and 180, reproduced.)
