One of a series of six coloured etchings by Dignimont for the life of Jesus-the-Caille, young gigolo of the Montmartre district in Paris in the 1910's. Written by Francis Carco. Published in a limited edition in 1929.
First edition of the etchings.

The etching is printed on vellum paper, especially made for the edition and with the watermark of the author Francis Carco.
in perfect condition.

A dive into the 1910s and more widely the Belle Epoque Paris in the popular neighborhoods where rapine and prostitution live, a hodgepodge of bars, filthy hotels and streets lit up by gas burners. Between attacks of morality and assassinations, the reader moves in a universe narred in the slang register of the time. It gives pride to homosexuality.

André DIGNIMONT (1891-1965) was one of the prominent figures of Montmartre from between the wars. Painter, poster artist and Illustrator.
Valuable artist.
