Ernest Henry Griset was one of the 19thc best known comic illustrators. This drawing dates from c.1865 is signed bottom left and inscribed bottom right. In good unfaded condition, it has a little foxing but that is always the case with Grisets drawings. A good example of this increasingly sought after artist's work.The paper is watermarked 1865. It was drawn from life at the Regents Park Zoo shortly after Griset had come to London.
