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.

Extent: 1 print : etching, hand-colored ; 35 x 27 cm., plate mark 27 x 21 cm.
Description
The commedia dell'arte character Harlequin perches atop a ladder, supported by his comrade Pierrot and other men, in front of a building bearing the sign Café du Bosquet, no. 118. Harlequin, who may be wearing a mask, raises a hand to conceal his laughter as he points towards a window. Another man attempts to mount the ladder, and a man at far right climbs atop another's shoulders in order to view the "embarrassment" taking place beyond the picture frame.
