Jules-Adolphe Chauvet

Now this is fun!  Note that one of the putti at top has an erection, and the other one is a girl!  It’s quite rare to see blatantly female putti like that.  And all the stuff going on at the bottom . . . très amusant. Chauvet, a student of Eugène Ciceri, produced this when he was twenty years old, providing the date is correct.
