It was considered very stylish to smoke a curly stem briar pipe and sport a cap. The combination suggested that one had just come from the races, even if that was not always the case.

Louis Legrand was born in Dijon, France on September 29, 1863. He worked as a bank teller, and studied art at the Dijon Ecole des Beaux Arts in his spare time. At the age of twenty he won the Devosge prize at that school and a year later left for Paris. Legrand arrived in Paris in 1884, where he studied under Felicien Rops and soon became famous for his paintings, drawings and etchings depicting the Parisian beau-monde. A superb draughtsman , his etchings also show great sophistication.
