Etching. 280 x 225mm, 11 x 8¾".
Charles Paul Renouard (1845-1924). While at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1875 he and his instructor were hired to decorate the ceiling of the Paris opera house, which was the inspiration for his most well-known series of etchings, Le Nouvel Opéra. He came to London in the 1890s and started work for the 'Graphic' newspaper, sketching theater-goers and performers at the Theater Royal in Drury Lane, and policemen and defendants at one of London’s many police courts.
