La Bouchée de Pain, sketches

Fernand
Pelez
Paris, 1848 – Paris, 1913
Circa 1904
Oil on canvas
179 x 70 cm

A line of poor people, young and old, heads towards the soup that will be given to them on the premises of La Bouchée de Pain.
The scene takes place on a street in Paris on a winter morning in the light of the street lamps. The worn clothes and postures of the walking bodies speak volumes about the condition of these unemployed labourers. A resident of the Butte Montmartre, the painter Fernand Pelez offered a strikingly truthful depiction of popular Paris at the end of the 19th century.
