About

Sportsmen. 1908. Etching and drypoint. Exsteens 271.i/ii. 11 x 5 5/8 (sheet 17 3/8 x 12 1/4). Series: Les Bars. From the first state edition of 30 proofs with the remarque sketch at the foot of the image (total edition 95). Printed on laid paper watermarked "Pellet et Legrand" on the full sheet with deckle edges. With the red Pellet stamp, lower right. Signed in pencil. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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.
