Description

Etching. Signed.

Nevinson visited Paris on many occasions and during the late 1920s spent a lot of time there making many prints of street scenes and paintings of the night life. His Parisian subjects show influences from the art schools at the time in Paris. ‘Pont Royale’ is one three images Nevinson completed of the famous bridges of Paris, the others being ‘Pont des Arts’ (1922) and ‘Pont Neuf’ (1922). This print can be viewed as Nevinson paying homage to both the great 19th Century French etcher Charles Meryon, and proponents of 18th century Japanese Woodblock printing.
