The Frenchmen Arrive at the NEW Pocket U!!

Armin Kunz in yellow conferring with me on who's who in engraving in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.  Paul Shore in the foreground determining the hanging height.

Armin, "Ok, we've got a portrait of King Louis XIV ca. 1644, age 6, next to two etchings of Baudelaire by Jacques Villon."

Paul standing beside the "wall of artists" with a portrait of the painter Charles Coypel visible along side a portrait of the sculptor Guilleaume Coustou the Elder.

Pictured above a portrait of the engraver Gerard Edelinck with the drapery falling out of the oval frame (which is a common theme).


Villon's (born Gaston Emile Duchamp) etched Baudelaire, 1920

Everything narrow, etched, engraved and contemplative.
