Label Copy

Whether in the café or on the street, Lautrec sketched constantly. In this rapid pen and ink study, we glimpse the draughtsman at his most spontaneous, as he lays down an overall impression with a few quick, swelling strokes. Side-shows such as this one were a common sight at fairs and on festival days and sometimes performed in the streets. Lautrec has sketched his subject from behind: a muzzled bear tended by a man in military costume, with an oversized saber hanging at his side.
