Artist Bio

A contemporary of Honoré Daumier, Paul Gavarni was a painter and prolific lithographer. The name Gavarni was a pseudonym that resulted from a mistake being made about his real name, Hippolyte Sulpice Guillaume Chevalier, during his early career. Beginning to make lithographs in 1824, Gavarni’s prints about fashion and contemporary life gained him recognition in the 1830s.

Original Text:

-Où Est-ce que c'est que ce Monsieur que sort d'ici?

-Ah! mon Dieu! il ne t'a pas parle?.. c'est un Monsieur qui venait pour l'affaire d'Ancelin... et qui part ce soir... il t'a attendu plus de deux heures!... mais comme tu as chaud, ma biche!

Translation:

-Where is it that this gentleman comes out of here?

-Ah! my God! Didn't he talk to you? ... it's a gentleman who came for Ancelin's business ... and who leaves tonight ... he waited for you more than two hours! ... but as you are hot, my doe!
