Rodolphe Bresdin (1822-1885
)Rest in the Flight to Egypt; Figures. 1883. Pen and ink drawing on cut-out tracing. 217 x 185. Signed and dated at the foot in the water. Faint traces of folds and scattered light foxing.
In 1853, thirty years earlier, Bresdin lithographed The Flight into Egypt (Van Gelder 85), whose figures are very similar to these, similarly sheltered under the foliage, on the banks of a river. Then, in 1878, he engraved The Rest in Egypt with a Packed Donkey (Van Gelder 138), which is even closer in subject matter (the donkey is at rest in our drawing, and not standing in the background as in the print).
