The Sentinel by Gaucherel after Meissonier

An etching entitled “The Sentinel” by the French printmaker Leon Gaucherel (1816-1886) after Meissonier. On vellum or mulberry paper and dated 1867 in the plate, this work has recently been reframed and remounted.  Bears a label, verso, indicating that it is on parchment  and is a proof etching.  Some light foxing overall but a rare and good piece. Published by E.E. Leggatt, London, in 1887.
