The Grandville Series celebrates the art of nineteenth-century illustrator J.J. Grandville in an exercise of complex screen printing. Each limited-edition serigraph isolates elements from Grandville’s single-color drawings, removing them from their nineteenth-century context to display them in a new world of color.
Jean-Ignace-Isidore Gerard (1803-1847), aka "J.J. Grandville." Illustrations from 'Scenes de la vie privee et publique des animaux,' also known as 'Les Animaux' (1840-1842).
