JULES CHÉRET (1836-1932) [GIRL WITH DRUM.] Gouache and charcoal on paper. 38 1/4x30 1/2 inches, 97 1/4x77 1/2 cm. Condition B+: restoration along repaired tear from upper margin through image; creases in image; minor overpainting and restoration in image. Paper. Matted and framed. Unexamined out of frame. A spirited and lively rendering of a young girl playing a large drum and cymbals. The brighter, white highlights that Chéret has added suggest that the young girl is performing beneath lights and also lend the image a feeling of movement. While several of Chéret's posters do feature people and drums, we are not able to associate this painting with any of them.
Provenance: acquired at Poster Auctions International VIII, May 1989, Lot 152.
