Title : Homme et femme Calmouck..
Map maker : GRASSET DE SAINT SAUVEUR, J..
Date : Paris,1801-1806.
Size : 6.9 x 3.9 inches. / 17.5 x 10.0 cm.
Colouring : In attractive original colours.

Description :Originally hand-colored mezzotint of two men from the autonomous Republic of Kalmykia dressed in native garb, engraved by Félix Mixelle and Lachaussée Jeune after Jacques Grasset de Saint-Sauveur.
As an etcher, drawer and writer, Grasset de Saint-Sauveur was a prolific polygraph in keeping with the encyclopedic spirit of the eighteenth century: he wrote exotic novels as well as documentary works on various subjects.
Called by one of his biographers a drawer without genius but a good example of the taste of his time, Grasset de Saint-Sauveur was literally bewitched by costumes.
Born in Montreal in April 1757 - at the beginning of the Seven Years' War - Jacques Grasset de Saint-Sauveur went to live in France after the conquest of New France by the British. He studied at Sainte-Barbe College in Paris and then embarked on a diplomatic career. After serving as French vice-consul in Hungary for several years, he was promoted to consul in Cairo.
He died in Paris in May 1810.

Kalmyk is the name given to the Oirats, western Mongols in Russia, whose descendants migrated from Dzhungaria in 1607. Through emigration, small Kalmyk communities have been established in the United States, France, Germany, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic.

Condition : In very good condition.
