Footnotes

  • Literature
    M.G. Dortu, Toulouse-Lautrec et son oeuvre, vol. VI, New York, 1971, p. 698, nos. D.4.081-082 (illustrated p. 699).

    Two studies for Toulouse-Lautrec's series of three lithographs entitled Le Procès Arton (Delteil nos. 191-3). The series was based on life studies, such as the present drawings, made in the courtroom during the dramatic trial of Emile Arton (1849-1905). Arton had been one of the principal agents in the Panama Affair, one of the largest financial scandals of the 19th Century in which close to a billion francs were lost and 800,000 French people were affected. The bearded figure on the verso is Arton himself.
