"Music Teacher".

Image: 8.50" h x 6" w; Total size in mat: 13" h x 10.50" w. Overall very good condition with some toning and a small spot near top of image, not affecting image at all.
Delightful color caricature of a violinist entitled "Music Teacher" with a funny ditty attached, reading:

Simpering jackass! flat, not sharp; -Teacher of fiddle and jewsharp -No old maestro you understand, -But discord's notes you hold in hand. -You claim to own a Stradivarius, -And also a real Guenarius. -The orchestra makes you its butt, -Drawer of horse tail o'er cat's gut.

Formerly in the collection of the Paris violin dealer Emil Fran├žais.
