Nicolas Lagneau - Polish drawings

Salvete Omnes,
no horses this time (soon, very soon there will be back) - so a quick time travel into the world of French draughtsman Nicolas Lagneau and his often grotesque drawings.
Gallica, French National Library, has in their collection many wash drawings of master Lagneau, including two portraits of Polish men, There are more of these portraits that might show Polish costumes - eg this one.
Young Polish man
Old Polish man (with a war hammer)


love the idea of digitilization of prints, drawings, paintigs, manuscripts and old books that is so prolific in continental Europe. Time travel with no end - :)
