A Gambling Hell in the Palais-Royal. Year V111 (1800) by Francois Courboin

£19.99

Product description

A reproduced print in excellent condition, originally was by Francois Courboin circa 1900.

Following the French Revolution (1789-1799), the 19th Century was a tumultuous time for France as society attempted to restructure its social value system. Courboin beautifully illustrated the changing fashions of this period.

This picture depicts a woman gambling with three men. The text describing Year VIII says, "Pleasure-seekers still specially affected the neighborhood of the Palais-Royal...This was the hour for which every vice, and every interest, had called a meeting...." (27) The woman is more scantily dressed, but her dress retains the typical empire waist and simplicity.

Print showing inside mount: 14.5 cm x 18.5 cm. Mount: 19.5 cm x 24.5 cm. Frame: 26 cm x 31 cm
