Milliardaires Americains. by ROUVEYRE, André.

~ Milliardaires Americains. [Paris, c. 1910-20].

Drawing, ink on paper (440 × 335 mm), laid to a heavier sheet. Signed ‘A.R.’ at foot. Quite browned, minimal fraying (mainly to right-hand edge) slightly affecting ink border, contemporary blue pencil note top left.

Contemporary caricature portraits of the great American millionaires Carnegie, Pierpont-Morgan, Gordon-Bennett, Harjes, Frick and Depew.

The drawing was probably intended for reduction and publication in an (unidentified) journal. Rouveyre (1879-1962) was immensely prolific as a caricaturist and maintained friendships and correspondence with important figures such as Apollinaire and Matisse (having met the latter as joint students of the symbolist painter Gustave Moreau).
