Catalogue Note

One of the most celebrated caricaturists of La Belle Époque. At the turn of the century, Georges Goursat arrived in Paris. Within three months he published an album of caricatures filled with the figures of the Parisian social scene. It was an instant success and made the young artist famous overnight. His work found popularity with both the masses and the society which is portrayed. Goursat would publish an annual album filled with the familiar celebrities and socialites through the lens of his wicked and often surreal humour. He continued to produce society caricatures until his death in 1934.
