Georges Goursat (1863-1934), better known as Sem, attained a high level of success with his portrayals of Paris at the turn of the century. The caricaturist was a member of the Salon des Humoristes and an officer of the Legion of Honor. His works offer us a view into Parisian high society at the turn of the century. Sem’s unique talent made his work very identifiable, particularly because of the essential sobriety of his composition, in which his characters usually emerge from a white or plain background rather than being more obvious caricatures. Sem captured the spirit of the subject and in turn produced images that were true to life. This print is a part of Album de Sem published in Paris in 1902.
