MANDOLIN - ENGRAVING

Fortuny, Mariano

"The Guitar Player".

Spain (?), c. 1865. Matted with a total size of c. 12.50 " h x 10.25" w (31.8cm x 26 cm). First state in fine condition.
Despite the title by which this etching is usually known, it depicts a man playing a mandolin, not a guitar. By the Spanish artist Mariano Fortuny (not to be confused with his son of the same name, who was also a painter but more famous for his dress designs).
