Les Folies-Bergère (Illustration for J.K. Huysmans' "Croquis Parisiens" 1880)
etching and drypoint | cream, laid paper
Gift of Steven Hutchins
This watercolor on brown prepared board is vertically oriented. The piece<br />
is reputedly a view of a Parisian street (perhaps in the 8th arrondissement), and the perspective is as if the viewer is on the fourth floor of an adjacent<br />
building. The upper two-thirds of the piece show a building-lined street,<br />
curving gently to the left. The buildings are about six stories tall, and<br />
additional rooftops are barely visible in the distance. On the ground<br />
floor of the buildings, there are traces of people, shops, and cafés. In<br />
the bottom third of the work, the road dissolves, but forms suggesting a<br />
few people populate the space.

Bequest of Margaret Watson Parker
Three arched openings (windows flanking a central door) are obscured by the trunks and foliage of two slender trees positioned in front of the building. Neither the tree trunks nor the building facade are drawn completely down to the ground.

Gift of Herbert Barrows

There are two separate drawings. The first is a colorful drawing of a gathering of people wearing formal attire. They are depicted as caricatures, with large heads. The other image is a sketch of three people, side by side. On the left, a woman is shown from the back; she wears a coat, hat, high heeled shoes, and carries an umbrella under her right arm. There is a man in the center, shown from the side. He is mid-step, and wears a coat, hat, and boots; he has a mustache. The sketch on the right appears to show the same woman that is depicted on the left, but from a side angle.
