Escargots d'Omnibus

Year: 1893

Description: This color lithograph depicts the nightmares 1890s travel. After nearly two decades of economic expansion, more Parisians were able to travel than ever before. The result was long lines and large crowds.

This work contains lovely texture and whimsical lines. Sure, the artist complains about the nightmare of travel but you'll find yourself chuckling as he recounts his vacation. It's a fine example of 1890s lithographic art. This work appeared in La Escarmouche.

Provenance: La Escarmouche, 24 December 1893
