Signed book, First edition

Dessin original signé au fusain et rehauts de gouache : contorsionniste à la fête du Trône

Georges TOURNON

Dessin original signé au fusain et rehauts de gouache : contorsionniste à la fête du Trône

Paris 1932, 15x9,5cm, une feuille.


Original drawing of the painter and draftsman Georges Tournon, in charcoal enhanced with gouache, signed "G. Tournon Feast of the throne Paris 1932".
"Georges Tournon was to be a Parisian artist who had acquired a certain dexterity in the art of chewing the street people, he had a real predilection to identify and draw from the nature of characters misery among the two wars: tramps curled up by the cold and hunger, couples of old people sitting on a bench, stray wanderers ... he associated with those excluded "at the end of the roll", sellers of "almost nothing", which, against a few cents, yielded to the passers-by flowers, mimosa, feather duster ... or played the portable barbaric organ with a sound so heart-rending that one does not forget it once it has been heard. " (Elisabeth Poulain)
