La cuisine bourgeoise - Middle Class Cuisine

Notes

Based on the painting, today held in the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, by the landscape artist Jean Baptise Lallemand from Dijon, active during the XVIII century. The print depicts in careful detail the interior of a middle class kitchen from the 18th century. Pierre-François Basan (Paris, 1723-ivi, 1797) engraved in Burin and acquaforte and was also a print dealer who almost monopolized the sales of engrazings in Paris for various years. He was the editor of one of the most beautifully illustrated books of the 18th century, Les Métamorphoses d’Ovide illustrées for Le Mire (1767-1771). He also worked on the monumental opera "Dictionnaire des graveurs anciens et modernes depuis l'origine de la gravure; avec une notice des principales estampes qu'ils ont graveés," published for the first time in 1767.
