Naked woman lying on her back next to a vase pouring water
Auguste Péquégnot engraved this series of Figures de Femmes d'après les Maîtres, and gathered them together in a collection of sixteen prints introduced by a frontispiece of his imagination. He chose to be inspired by the works of François Boucher essentially.
These women are staged with some decorative elements: a vase, a drapery, a dove, but the engraver wanted to make an observation of the postures, attitudes that highlight femininity and its mysteries. Petegnot, who, wishing to suggest a drawing, used the technique of soft varnish to reproduce on copper the graphic effects of pencil on paper. These prints are usually printed with a reddish-brown sepia ink to approximate the visual warmth of the sanguine drawing.
