TWO ACTORS STANDING ON AN ORNAMENTAL PLATFORM

Catalogue Note

This very amusing subject is related to the print after Watteau, engraved either by C. Vanloo or Nicolas Vleughels in Figures de différents caractères, no. 100.1

A drawing formerly in the E. Pontremoli collection, Paris, known only from an old photograph, is in reverse to the print, but is considered by Rosenberg and Prat to be a copy.2  In their entry for that drawing, they mention the existence of a painting of this same subject, in the same direction as the print, which was sold as Circle of Gillot at Divonne-les-Bains.3
