Lithographs of prominent people by R.J. Lane after Count Alfred D'Orsay, 1823-48 (volume 1)
49 Portraits in set
160 lithographs by R. J. Lane, some of which have been tinted, after portrait drawings of prominent people by French-born artist and dandy Count Alfred D'Orsay. D’Orsay joined the authoress Marguerite, Countess of Blessington (1789-1849), in establishing a celebrated salon and his portrait drawings represent the fashionable world of London during the 1830s and 1840s. This collection of lithographs comprises 2 albums and a portfolio of loose prints. The first album, probably assembled by D’Orsay himself, was formerly in the collections of Lady Blessington, her niece Marguerite Agnes Power, Annie Verini, and Sir Edmund Gosse.
