Footnotes

  • EXHIBITED:
    Paris, Salon d'Automne, 1916.

    The present work is an original illustration to Guy de Maupassant's short story 'Le Vagabound' written and originally published in the 1880's.

    'A fine, thick, icy cold rain was coming down, and he stopped and murmured: "Oh, misery! Another month of walking before I get home." ...If he only earned a franc a day, that would at any rate buy him something to eat.

    He tied the remains of his last pocket handkerchief round his neck to prevent the cold rain from running down his back and chest, but he soon found that it was penetrating the thin material of which his clothes were made, and he glanced about him with the agonized look of a man who does not know where to hide his body and to rest his head, and has no place of shelter in the whole world.'

    A Vagabond, Guy de Maupassant
