Lith de Balathier, Rue Jacob, 48. [n.d. c.1833]
Rare lithograph, sheet 330 x 240mm (13 x 9½"). Repaired tears. Slight surface dirt.
A man ice skates rightward, with his hands tucked into his pockets, wearing Scottish plaid trousers, a scarf covering the lower portion of his face and he sports a hat pulled down over his ears. Another man, likewise skating and puffing on his pipe, is behind him on the left. Paul Gavarni (1804-66) was a lithographer, caricaturist, engraver, and wood draughtsman. studied mechanical drawing in 1818 at the Paris Conservatoire des Arts et Métiers. He started the "Journal des Gens du Monde" in 1833, but it failed and he was forced to enter prison because he was unable to pay his debtors. Following his release from prison, Gavarni began to sketch theatrical costumes as well as some drawings for wood engravings used in book illustrations. While employed by Philipon's "Le Charivari" in 1837, he designed the female equivalent of Daumier's "Robert Macaire." This prompted him to concentrate on observing the feminine aspects of Parisian society, which resulted in the hugely popular series "Les Lorettes."
