Café de la Rotonde

Peggy Bacon (American, 1895–1987) Portrait of Leonard Foujita (Japanese, 1886–1968)
This drypoint is typical of Bacon's work from the 1920s and 1930s. She fills the entire composition with detailed and realistic depictions of people engaged in social interactions. These images reveal the artist's fascination with the eccentricities of each individual she portrayed.
