Meaune 617 - Tie 302 Height 229 - Width 302 mm Superb proof, on paper with watermark n°20, the Eagle, with a perfect preservation and with the margins. Room extremely rare, giving an interesting panorama of Florence in the background. Provenance: Collection of Dr. Rossier (Lugt 1357) Klipstein + Kornfeld, 1957 "Very particular print by its very form, unique in Callot's work. Very artistically composed, very skillfully engraved, it is consequently very sought-after. Callot designed a fan-shaped frame with a grimacing figure at the top and bottom, and in this elegantly designed frame he depicted a party with fireworks on the Arno River in Florence. It is the feast of the Dyers and Weavers (1619)". Jules LIEURE in Catalogue de l'oeuvre gravé de Jacques Callot, Paris, 1924-1927.
