A beautiful hand colored lithograph of an elegant Syrian woman from Damar published in the French work "Galerie Royale de Costumes peints d´après nature par divers artistes et lithographiés par Alophe, Janet-Lange et Dollet". Printed by Lemercier in Paris. The lithography is beautifully finished with water colour and gum Arabic. Good detail of the costume.

From the serie Costumes du Caucase. Very rare as the series was only published in instalments in the 1840's.

Prince Grigory Grigorievich Gagarin was born Saint-Petersbourg, Russia (11 mai 1810) and died in Châtellerault, France (30 janvier 1893). He was a Russian painter, Major General and administrator.
Gagarin travelled to the Caucasus (1839-1840) following his friend Mikhail Lermontov. Gagarin's Caucasian period was probably the most prolific period of his artistic career. He drew numerous drawings and watercolours depicting battle scenes, Caucasian warriors and Russian soldiers as well as genre scenes of the life of people of the Caucasus.
These works were later reproduced as colour lithographs in the album series "Le Caucase Pittoresque", (Paris, 1847-1859) and Scènes, paysages, mœurs et costumes du Caucase (Paris, 1845-1846).
