Papillons - Metamorphoses Terrestres Des Peuples De L'Air are a series of thirty-five delightful hand-colored Victorian engravings illustrating personification of lovely butterflies in the style of Grandville (also available on CD). Each early 19th-century charming human figure is richly costumed in the wings of a given species placed in an appropriate 'natural' setting, often surrounded by anthropomorphized insects. These prints are by Amédée Varin (1818-1883) who was a Draughtsman and painter, and member of the French School. He belonged to a true dynasty of artists, and took part in the preparation of the engraving of Les Fleurs Animees the animated Flowers of Grandville. This work precedes Grandville's.
