RAVENET, Simon François
(b. 1706, Paris, d. 1774, London)

The Cries of Paris: Radishes, Turnips

Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris

Ever since the sixteenth century, prints or vignette-like illustrations had depicted the lively, if somewhat ragged appearance of street hawkers called The Cries of Paris. Boucher and Bouchardon also tried their hands at this subject.

Ravenet's engraving was made after Boucher.
