Fête donnée à St. Pétersbourg (etching (print); published: Chez Hocquart, rue St. Jacques no. 64; published ca. 1834-1840; Getty Research Institute, Special Collections (Los Angeles, ...; 537957; accession number: 2000.PR.21*)
Note: The print dealer Hocquart succeeded Basset at the shop on the rue Saint-Jacques, 64. His activity at this address is documented from 1834 to 1840; The print represents a festival decoration that incorporates a wheel-shaped fireworks display. It is derived from the etching titled Vue et décoration de la façade du feu d'artifice élevé en la place de Grêve ... le 21 jan. 1782 à l'occasion de la naissance de Mgr le Dauphin. However, symbols of the French royal house have been removed from the decoration of the columnated facade and a grid of lines suggesting a pavement, has been added in the foreground. Publication: A Paris : Chez Hocquart, rue St. Jacques no. 64, [ca. 1834-1840].
