Goblet with two men smoking, anonymous, 1776

Goblet with two men smoking, anonymous, 1776

glassblowing, h 28.2cm × d 15.5cm More details

Stipple-engravings consist of nothing more than configurations of tiny dots. When the dots are close together, as in the faces of the peasants on this goblet, they create a lighter field. Set further apart, as in the clothing of the peasant with the pipe in his mouth, the eye reads this as a darker area.
