[VERLAINE Paul]. CAZALS Frédéric-Auguste (1865-1941)
Original DRAWING, Head of Paul Verlaine, signed lower left F.A. Cazals"; charcoal enhanced with pink and red wash on laid paper, 10.6 x 6.5 cm mounted on card.
Nice profile portrait of Verlaine.
"Official" portrait artist of Verlaine, Frédéric-Auguste Cazals shows here the smiling poet. This drawing seems to have remained unpublished. This head in profile is similar to the portrait of the poet on the famous Salon des Cent poster dated December 1894 and also drawn by Cazals. Several studies are known, including one reproduced on the cover of the Album Verlaine de la Pléiade.
