  • May 24, 1940 An exhibition of French color prints, done in the extravagant, frivolous period when moral considerations were not dominant in France in the 18th Century, will make up an exhibition arranged by the Print Department of the Brooklyn Museum, opening Friday, May 24th, and extended through the summer to September 15th. The exhibition, entitled “Estampes Galantes,” will be made up entirely of loans from the Lachman-Mosse Collection, lent by John Rudolf Mosse, and from the collections of M. Knoedler & Company.

    The series “Cries of London” and engravings by Louis Marin Bonnet, from the Lachman-Mosse Collection, will be two groups; the third will be selections of works by several artists from M. Knoedler & Company.

    “Cries of London,” is a series of engravings by Giovanni Vendramini, Luigi and Niccolo Schiavonetti, and Thomas Gaugain after paintings by Francis Wheatley. The Bonnet prints are entitled, “Pretty Nose Gay Garle,” “The Milk Woman,” “Pleasures Of Education,” “Provoking Fidelity,” and “The Woman ta King Coffee.” From the Knodler collections the works shown are by Challe-Alix, Boucher-Bonnet, Bonnet, Vernet-Debucourt, Debucourt, Taunay-Descourtis, Lavreince-Denargle, Lavreince-Vidal and Wille-Janinet.
