About

French School beginning of the 20th century Portrait of an officier, 1915 Pastel on paper signed "E Rousselet" and dated 1915 lower right 51.5 x 31.5 cm In its original mount : 70 x 53 cm, no frame In good condition, except foxings througout the sheet. The signature Rousselet doesn't fit with any known artist of the time and it's quite curious as this portrait testifies of a real talent, but 1915 saw of course many young talented men lost their lives at war. The influence of symbolism is quite evident in the technique and pose of the model, it's not just a standard portrait and it has a real power of evocation, just as if the model has just been portrayed by surprise and expressed this feeling by his enigmatic gaze.
