“The engraver Georges-Jacques Gatine (born 1773) is considered one of the 19th century masters of fashion plate etchings. He was closely associated with L’abbe de la Mesangere who was director of Journal des Dames. Gatine was the engraver for the important portfolio Le Bon Genre (1817) which satirized Parisian social life and proved to be a inspiration for the art of Daumier. Gatine executed several other works based on drawings by Lante. The genre painter Louis-Marie Lante (born 1789) did watercolors for several collections of costume published by Journal des Modes after 1817″ —Mead Cain, Printseller
