dc.description.abstractThis illustration uses Grandville for the basic form of the two rats and the egg, but changes the forest of the book engraving into a bit of vegetation and an opening through which the fox can peer at the scene. The work is not quite as distinct as the Grasshopper and the Ant in the same series.en_US
