Lot Essay

In fine, early sets such as the present one, Les Bohemiens is one the most sought-after series in the oeuvre of Jacques Callot, and perhaps one that was particularly close to his heart: legend has it that at the tender age of twelve, he left his home in Nancy for the first time to join a group of travellers, whom he accompanied all the way to Florence.
