Bobino’s in Montparnasse opened as a dance hall in 1800; later became a music hall and theatre; closed in 1983; but reopened more recently.

Walter Richard Sickert (1860-1942) was one of the most important figures of his time in British art. He was a pupil of Whistler, and in 1883 he worked in Paris with Degas. Between 1885 and 1905 he spent much of his time in Dieppe, living there 1899–1905, and also visited Venice several times. From 1905, when he returned to England, he became the main channel for influence from avant-garde French painting in British art—inspiring a host of younger artists with the force of his personality as well as the quality of his work. The Allied Artists’ Association (1908), the Camden Town Group (1911), and the London Group (1913) were all formed largely by artists in his circle.

Interiors of theatres and dance halls were some of Sickert’s favourite subjects, in the spirit of Degas. The present work would estimate around £7,000 – 10,000 at auction.
