Ask a Question

'International Bar, pencil, ink and gouache on card stock by an unnamed artist of the French School (20th Century). This appears to be a fantastical port visit of the artist's imagination. It is very lively in colour and in subject. The artwork was discovered in Paris along with several others of the same character, most likely by the same person. It depicts the entryway of a brightly lit Asian bar where a French officer waits. To his side, another is arriving via rickshaw. The Chinese or Kanji characters may be authentic...or not. There is a vintage look to the scene as exemplified in the clothing and the ambiance in general - most likely portraying the 1930s. Is it Tokyo, Shanghai, or just a location in the artist's imagination? The work is in good overall condition. It has been newly framed with anti-reflective glass. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying the listing. Upon request a video may be provided.
