About The Artist: Henri Avelot (1873 - 1935) was a painter, cartoonist, illustrator and author. He exhibited his paintings at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts in 1901, but it was at the Salon des Humoristes, where he exhibited a series of designs and drawings in 1910, that his talent as a satirist was first recognized.Henri Louis Avelot worked as a writer, artist, caricaturist and illustrator, mainly for publisher Laurens. His first assignment was making illustrations for Marius Bernard's opera 'Autour de la Mediterranée', published in book format by Laurens between 1892 and 1902. In 1893-94 and again in 1896-97, on the occasion of the Olympic Games, Avelot travelled through Greece and the mid-Orient with his friends Raymond, Joseph and Georges de la Nezière.
We aren't quite sure who Frederique was, but my guess is a wacky (and flexible) performer from the Paris cabaret scene, circa 1927.
