Antique natural history print


French 18th century engraving of a cat. Jacques E. De Seve was the principal artist commissioned by Georges-Louis Leclerec, Comte de Buffon to illustrate his 'Histoire Naturelle'. De Seve was not content to simply portray his animals in a dry and factual manner. Rather, he insisted on providing full backgrounds, including classical landscapes. Feline interest. Faint cockling to the paper.
