Louis Legrand French, 1863-1951


Like Toulouse-Lautrec, Louis Forain and Felicien Rops, Legrand is one of the great draftsman and printmakers of the turn of the century.  Legrand's drawings of the can-can girls and the Moulin-Rouge were actually published prior to those of Toulouse - Lautrec.  It is for the etchings of his ballet dancers that he is principally sought after but his works on paper of bohemian Parisian life, children and women and the cafes of Paris are equally intriguing.
