Superb charcoal probably made on the occasion of studies for the opera Goyescas, which will be performed for the first time on December 7, 1919 at the Paris Opera.
Painter, poster artist, illustrator, then mainly decorator and costume designer for the theater. He was appointed artistic director of the Paris Opera in 1912. We owe him many sets and costume models for the Théâtre des Arts, the Comédie-Française, the Opéra-Comique, the Trianon-Lyrique (La Belle de Haguenau, 1924) and the Théâtre du Châtelet.
A deep friendship binds him to Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, whose portrait he paints several times. The best known being that of the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
Other works by Maxime Dethomas can be found at the Montmartre museum, the Orsay museum or the Fine Arts museums in Lille or Marseille.
