- Curator's comments
- This print was listed in the 'Bibliographie de la France' for 11 June 1831 (no.506).
When he was curator in the 'Cabinet des Estampes' in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, Devéria noted the names of his models on the mounts. It is this thanks to these notes that it is nowadays possible to identify the woman represented in the present lithograph.
Annette Boulanger was the sister of Louis Boulager (1806-1867), pupil of Devéria, painter and director of the 'École impériale des Beaux-Arts de Dijon'.
