Bible and La Fontaine
Chopin in his letter to the family, written for several days (from 12 to 26 December): "I have sent by Glucksberg two volumes: Old and New Testament with English illustrations for Ludwika and Izabela. These illustrations are recognized here as very beautiful; these are paintings of the most famous masters of the old and new school: Rafael, Rubens, Poussin. Many of those paintings are here, in the Louver, maybe Ludwika will remember them. I have sent to Antoni, who does not have children, a little volume by Gavani with drawings of des enfants terribles [horrible children] etc. for him to have fun and to remember the local, stupid sense of humor. Kalasante will receive proverbs with illustrations by Grandville. Grandville was the first of this kind to start career, but nobody understood it better than Gavarni. I am sure you have seen Lafontaine by Grandville."
Paul Gavarni, proper name: Sulpice-Guillaume Chevailier (1804-1866) – illustrator and caricaturist, co-worker in the magazine "Charivari". Jean-Ignace Grandville (1803-1847), famous Paris illustrator, provisded illustrations for  among others, Fables by La Fontaine. More information:
