Grandville

Actually his name was Jean Ignace Isidore Gérard. He was born in Nancy on September 15, 1803 and died March 17, 1847 in Vanves near Paris. His adopted artist's name was Grandville, however. And as such he is widely known among the lovers of caricatures and pointed political sarcasm.

Grandville contributed to "Le Charivari" and "La Caricature" France's most prominent satirical magazines in the 19th century. His way of drawing people with the heads of animals and matters with the heads of people allowed for the fine line of irony which his art is famous for. "Les Métamorphoses du Jour" appeared 1829, "Les Animaux" 1842, "Petites Misères de la Vie Humaine" 1843 and "Un autre Monde" 1844. He is just as famous for his Grandville-style book illustrations (La Fontaine, Balzac, Hugo, "Gulliver" and "Robinson Crusoe" to name his most prominent work).

Here is a collection of lithographs in superb original hand coloring and condition from his "Les Métamorphoses du Jour" edition of 1853 in which he so exquisitly uses the people-animal-metamorphosis to characterize lovable and less lovable characteristics of all of us people. Prints have normal age toning, and light browning along margin edges. Minimal light spotting on a few prints. Margins are larger than shown on theses scans.
