Lot Essay

In 1834, Bridoux won the Prix de Rome for engraving at the Paris Académie and soon after moved to Italy where he lived for five years. This affectionate portrait of two young men was most likely executed shortly before the artist’s departure or perhaps on that occasion. A handwritten inscription in graphite at the bottom of the sheet, now only partially legible, once recorded the name of the sitter with his friend.
