Grandville Colored

1920? La Fontaine fables GA and FS illustrated in color by J.J. Grandville on two postcards. No indication of date or publisher. There is no writing on either verso. 50 Francs each from Annick Tilly, Clignancourt, July, '01.

While the engraving is not as distinct as one would wish for Grandville's exquisite work, the coloring brings something new to his art. Both of these colored cards are done in portrait format. See also the landscape black-and-white inscribed postcard I have of Grandville's FS under individual postcards.
