Ernst  Fröhlich

Kempten 1810 – Munich 1882

Three sheets of the 18-sheet set “(Hunt Reminiscences)” lithographed in chalk by Victor-Jean Vincent Adam (Paris 1801 – Viroflay 1866), here though

in  the  splendidly  watercolored  copies

of  the  baronial  collection  JB

with its crown-monogram stamp in the lower margin. – Mounted on framed light cardboard with reg.-nos. in ink by hand.

Schwerdt as the supposedly most comprehensive hunting collection missed the set entirely, Schoeller had it in b/w only (no. 426, see below).

How  much  more  charming  and  desirable  thus

colored  qualities  like  the  ones  here !

„ vielen Dank für die prompte Lieferung! … Nach diesem Kupferstich (Hogarth, Sleeping Congregation) habe ich übrigens ziemlich lang gesucht – offenbar immer an der falschen Stelle – und bin jetzt außerordenlich froh, ein so unversehrtes Exemplar zu besitzen … Herzlichen Dank noch mal und freundliche Grüße “
