Notes: This was part of a portfolio entitled “Regards sur Paris”. Ten writers - all members of the Academie Goncourt - contributed essays to this book which presents the different sights and scenes of Paris. Each text is illustrated by a different artist with 2 full page and 1 double page Lithograph. The author of the work, Pierre Dumouchelles, called Mac Orlan, was born in 1893 and particularly qualified to describe his city having lived in the “Bateau Levoir” from 1906 to 1912. The year he left Picasso also gave up his studio there. In 1962, half a century later, Picasso illustrated Mac Orlands text about their old quarter with three lithographs of which this example is one.
