Eilshemius, Louis M. (Louis Michel)
Place of publication, production, or execution:
No place, unknown, or undetermined
Item : 1 sheet : ill. ; 17 x 22 cm.
Date based on penciled note, lower left corner. Sheet features blank box in which Eilshemius' name is written in pen; surrounded by an illustration of two young men, presumably artists, pointing at chefs and waiters bearing platters of food. Surrounding text reads: Thanksgiving dinnner of ye Art Students at Paris, Restaurant Lepérouse [i.e. Lapérouse], 51 quai des Grands Augustins. This item served most likely either as a place card at the dinner table or perhaps as an invitation to the dinner.
