- Curator's comments
- 'Les Métamorphoses du Jour' is one of the most successful series of lithographs that Grandville made. The first edition was published by Bulla and Martinet between 1829 and 1830. Since the publication of the first plates the success was so remarkable, that Bulla and Martinet decided in 1829 to publish a bilingual edition (French and English) although the first French edition was not yet entirely published. The present print is part of the bilingual edition of 1829.
