Brouet, Grand Saint-Ouen

Grand Saint-Ouen

Etching and drypoint, Geffroy 99, 209 x 305 mm. Fine impression, with burr and plate tone, on Van Gelder wove paper with large, full margins, signed in pencil and numbered from the edition of 60 (Geffroy mistakenly says 75). Brouet grew up in the outskirts of Paris, among the rag pickers, gypsies, carnival workers and the like that populated that area. A scene like this, almost a convention of rag pickers and junk dealers, would not have been to him an adventure in slumming but an everyday occurrence. That such a milieu could produce a graphic artist of his quality (and he is not the only example) is one of the mysteries of life. Saint-Ouen is today the site of the marché aux puces, Paris’ famous flea market, which generally handles a higher class of goods than what is shown here. This is perhaps Brouet’s best representation of the scene.
