F17 Hannoosh - FRENCH 369 - Paris, Capital of the Nineteenth Century

This lithograph is printed in black ink on a rose-colored chine collé paper. It depicts a wide Parisian boulevard as though seen from above at a distance. Large trees and buildings line either side of the street. Vehicles and pedestrians, many of whom appear to hold umbrellas, people the scene.

A man laying on his back dominates this landscape-oriented black-and-white lithograph. He is fully dressed. Positioned diagonally across the foreground and depicted using dramatic foreshortening, his face is near the viewer (a mustache is visible, and he wears a hat reminiscent of a kepi, or military hat), while his stiff upturned feet lead the eye towards the ramshackle wall of paving stones that cuts horizontally across the top third of the composition. A pair of feet peeking out of striped trousers jut into the lower right foreground, while stones and possibly a wheel fill the left foreground. Hazy fences and buildings rise in the background empty stretches of street.<br /><br />
The work is signed on the stone (on one of the piled-up paving stones) in the front left foreground: “Manet / 1871”.<br /><br />
