    Description

    David Teniers. [Louis Henry Pierre Duvale, engraver]. "Arrivée au Sabat". [N.p.]: 1783.

    More Information:

    Approximately 10.5 x 13 inches. Engraved image of witches gathering for a Sabbath with numerous elements of the fantastique, including the central figure of an old woman with a taper, another woman digging in the earth, a human figure with either a mask or a literal bird's head, a satyr playing a lute, a variety of flying and landed creatures, and a small figure with long hair standing before an open glowing lantern. The image appears to be reversed, as the engraver's name and date in the lower border are printed backwards. Folded horizontally. Light edge and fold wear, small edge tears, corner chips (repaired), small hole in lower and upper borders, light creases and minor soiling. On verso: paper, tape, and holograph pencil notes. Otherwise in very good condition. From the Krown & Spellman Collection.
