Description: Photomontage from prints of individual criminals. Printed in Le Petit Parisien, 7/24/28. This piece is from a series of images of French criminals that were reproduced in this tabloid newspaper, where photos of wanted and condemned criminals appeared each day. Names of subjects and printing date inscribed in pen verso. Société du Petit Parisien date stamp verso. Prints were hand painted in order to heighten contrast, so that they could be better reproduced in a newspaper. This retouching is attributed to two Italians. From collection "Juges et Assasins." 1
