L'Oeuvre De Zola; 16 Simili Aquerelles

by Lebourgeois, H.; Emile Zola

Condition: See description

Paris; [1898]: E. Bernard & Co. 7" x 10" 16 hand-colored (watercolor ) prints by Lebouregoise which are seldom complete (complete sets are in the British Library, New York Public Library and the Lilly Library at Indiana University). Zola was the object of more caricatures than any other French writer in the 19th Century. It was not just his open view of the erotic but the blatantly scatological. Here the caricatures of Zola are both as an observer and participant of behavior outside normal society. Included are Pot-Bouille which shows him making a move on the cleaning lady, a literary agent [L'agent] bowing before a wealthy publisher, Zola at work with his reference dictionaries "dictionnarie L'Academie" around him, La Docteur Pascal, Zola as satyr in Le Bonheur du Pere Rougon, and others. While these were intended for framing, the set here is complete though the paper covers for the portfolio contain only the front and back covers (detached). Overall toning to first plate, others clean and bright,
