Ozanne “left behind a considerable number of works, nothing but seascapes with ships in the harbors, such in calm and stormy sea and so forth … The sheets by this artist reveal
extraordinary knowledge in maritime affairs
and they are distinguished by absolute truth of the delineation” (Nagler). His brother Pierre (Brest 1737 – Paris 1813) engraved just as both the two sisters after Nicolas’s designs, yet also own designs.
Present charming set of contemporary copies in reverse including i. a. ships – among these very fine galley & xebec – before harbors and gardens & palaces resp. as well as bucolic scenes at the water including fishing pleasure.
