Pierre Gatier- ice skating in the Bois de Boulogne, 1908.
Pierre Gatier, ice skating the Bois de Boulogne - "Grand patinage au bois - Valseurs"Ets met aquatint gemaakt in 1908 door Pierre Louis Gatier. Met potlood gesigneerd, gedateerd en betiteld. Uitgegeven in een oplage van 50 stuks. Afm.: 34,8 x 49,4 cm.Tijdens de Belle Epoque trok Tout Paris in de winter naar het Bois de Boulogne. Men kon er schaatsen in stijl. De New York Times berichtte: ?During the Summer season the promenade of the fashionable world is the Bois de Boulogne, the Chanps Elys?es having been given up to the carriageless million. But no one would have ever dreamed, perhaps, that the wood was to become, in the dead of Winter, a place as of much attraction as in the heat of Summer. In the centre of the wood the two artificial lakes which have an extent of nearly a mile, are now covered with a firm sheet of ice, and on it may be seen thousands of skaters of both sexes. To the Parisians this is a novel scene, and you can well imagine that the Bois at once became the centre of attraction.??Gatier (1878-1944) verwierf bekendheid met z?n marine schilderijen en werd daarnaast gevierd om z?n sc?nes van de Parijse nachtclubs en society.Literatuur: Felix Gatier ?Catalogue Raisonne de L'Oeuvre Grav?, nr. 41Prijs: ?2.950,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).
