Thaulow, Frits(1847-1906)
Two Horses and a Carriage in a Village Street

Oil on canvas
Signed lower left: Frits Thaulow.

Original frame. Annotated on a torn note of paper on the back of the frame: "Expos... Frits Thaulow 5-31 Janvier 191... Léon Yeatman".

The note of paper stems from Georges Petit, one of Thaulow's Art-Dealers, who initiated an exhibition with paintings by the artist in 1917. The top of the label amongst other things are missing. The whole label must have looked like this: "Galerie Georges Petit, 8, Rue de Sèze, Paris, exposition, Frits Thaulow, 5-31 Janvier 1917, Léon Yeatman".

Georges Petit (1856-1920) was one of Thaulow's most renowned Art-Dealers. The exhibition in 1917 had no catalogue. The only thing in existence from the exhibition, is 4 photographs of the paintings hanging on the walls in the exhibition-room, and this painting "Two Horses and a Carriage in a Village Street" is identifiable in the second photograph from the top.


Léon Yeatman, Paris 1917. (Letters from Marcel Proust to one Léon Yeatman from 1894, 1897 and 1901 exist on the web).
