Description
[SLAVERY & ABOLITION]. ROLLET, "Citoyenne," engraver, after John Raphael Smith, after George Morland. Traite Des Nêgres. Paris: Francois Depeuille, ca 1794-1795.

Engraved print, 18 3/4 x 15 3/4 in., slight surface abrasions, small tears along edge lines.

La Citoyenne Rollet was a French female printmaker who was active in the late 18th century. The engraving, after George Morland's 1788 painting "The Execreble Human Traffic," features an African family in a coastal setting being brutally separated by European slave traders. Text below the engraving reads (translated from the French): "What an infamous contract. One bargains for a person who belongs to no one, the other sells what belongs to nature. This vile trade was abolished by the National Convention on the 16th Pluviose of the 2nd year of a united and indivisible French Republic."
