Bonnet’s print exemplifies the importance of copying and collecting works by master artists as well as the social value of the graphic arts in Parisian society. The inscription indicates Bonnet dedicated the print to Antoine de Sartine, Lieutenant General of Police under Louis XV. In 1766, the year prior to this print, Sartine became a State Councilor, one of the highest-ranking dignitaries of the French monarchy, and this print honors that prestigious appointment.
