The Art of Louis Sabattier I: 1897 – 1904

The trained history painter Louis Sabattier was one of the most interesting press illustrators of the late 19th century. None of the numerous accredited special artists managed to catch the tense atmosphere of the spectacular trials against Alfred Dreyfus and Émilé Zola in a comparable subtle way. Many of his soft focussed photo-paintings for the French magazine L Illustration conveyed a ambiguous cultural-critical content. Topics: Social facilities and Working worlds / Dreyfus affair and Zola trial / La vie automobile
