Au nom du Peuple Francais

Au nom du Peuple Francais (on behalf of the French people)

DESCRIPTION: Large copperplate of Neptune poised on the stern of a French sailing vessel wielding a trident above the French cypher "RF" (Republique Francais). This fine work from the original 18th century plate, is an early 20th century restrike from the original plate by the Louvre of an etching and engraving by Tardieu created ca. 1790. Believe the engraving is similar to the letterhead that Hue designed for the French Ministry of Marine.

La Chalcographie du Louvre is a repository of more that 13,000 original plates from the Louvre's archives, housed upstairs above the Louvre's Paris galleries . Upon request visitors can have a engraving produced from one of those original plates by master printers on museum-quality paper. V. 202
