A bearded man

Achille Fouquier

1817-1895?

“Study of a bearded man (self-portrait?)” Pencil drawing enhanced with white stone on beige paper, 45 X 30 cm at sight, signed with the stamp of the signature circa 1853, framed by ‘a stained Marie-Louise 65 X 50 cm.
This drawing, which shows us a man dressed in the oriental style, in slippers, turban and drapery, presents European features that make me think of a self-portrait. An indefatigable traveler, Achille Fouquier brought back sketches, anecdotes and observations from his many trips, collected in several books that were published. Whether from the Basque Country (he was mayor of Saint-Jean-de-Luz), Italy, Greece, the Balkans or the Middle East, his drawings taken from life are testimony to the history of these regions Do not hesitate to ask us for photos or additional information by email or phone.
