Engraver William Hollidge British
After François-Alfred Delobbe French

Not on view

The good friends of the title are a boy and his cat sharing a drink from the same cup. The British printmaker Hollidge produced this wood engraving after a painting by the French artist Delobbe for London's weekly journal "Illustrated London News." In 1875, Delobbe began to spend summers at the artists's colony at Concarneau in Brittany and focused on children and peasant subjects.
