Lot Essay

'No one better captures the look of the street, the coloured patch seen through the Parisian mist, the passing silhouettes, a young girl's frail grace. A searching hand moving with simian pliancy seizes the passing gesture, the evanescent faces of the street, born and vanished on the instant. It is the poetry of life that is gone, a remembrance of things, of animals, of human beings'. (Gustave Geffroy, quoted in: Rediscovered Printmakers of the 19th Century, Merrill Chase Gallery, Chicago, 1978).
