Engraving – William FRENCH – Die Flötenbläserin

An engraving by William FRENCH (1815-1898) after the French painter, Nicolas LANCRET (1690-1743) called Die Flötenbläserin [The Flute Player]. William French made engravings after paintings by English contemporaries as well as old masters.
This particular engraving was published in Germany around 1850 by Englische Kunstanstalt von A. H. Payne, Leipzig & Dresden. Albert Henry PAYNE (1812 London – 1902 Leipzig) was an English painter and illustrator, steel engraver and publisher. He settled in Leipzig in 1838 where in 1845 he became a citizen. He founded the Englische Kunstanstalt publishing house first in Leipzig and later in Dresden.
Here we have a lovely setting by a fountain where a young lady seems to be learning how to play the recorder with several onlookers, including what seems to be the God Pan.
