NotesTitle devised by cataloger.Acquisition: Grecque, Arlésienne, Cameriste Gift; Lillian Moore.Acquisition: Miroir, Bergère Louis XV Gift; Lincoln Kirstein.Acquisition: Zingara Gift; Cia Fornaroli.Biographical/historical: The printing and publishing house of Maison Martinet was founded in 1796 by Aaron Martinet, 1762-1841, who became well-known for publishing satirical prints. In 1822 the firm assumed the name Hautecoeur-Martinet, after Martinet's son-in-law Hermenégilde Hautecoeur, who became its head after Martinet's retirement in 1824. The brothers Eugène and Alfred Hautecoeur, the Hautecoeur frères, managed the business from 1843 to 1867. Jules Hautecoeur, Alfred's son and the great-grandson of the founder, later became the sole proprietor of Ancienne Maison Martinet.
