  • Painting Description

    "Le Père Goriot" is a seminal novel in French literature, written by the renowned author Honoré de Balzac (1799–1851) as part of his expansive series La Comédie Humaine. First published in 1835, the novel is a keen observation of social strata and ambition in the Parisian society of the 19th century. It tells the story of Jean-Joachim Goriot, a former pasta manufacturer who sacrifices his wealth and social standing for his two daughters, only to be spurned by them as they climb the social ladder. The novel explores themes of parental love, the corrupting power of money, and the social climbing of the bourgeoisie.

    In 1922, a notable edition of "Le Père Goriot" was published in Paris by René Kieffer, a distinguished figure in the world of book arts known for his exquisite bindings and illustrations. This edition was particularly celebrated for its illustrations by Quint, an artist who managed to capture the essence of Balzac's characters and the atmosphere of the period with remarkable finesse. Quint's illustrations provided a visual depth to Balzac's narrative, enhancing the reader's immersion into the story. The 1922 Kieffer edition is a testament to the enduring legacy of "Le Père Goriot," demonstrating how the novel continues to inspire artistic interpretations and remains a pivotal work for understanding French society during the Restoration and the July Monarchy.

    This edition is not only a significant contribution to the literary world for its textual content but also a valuable collectible item for its artistic merit. The collaboration between René Kieffer, a master of bookbinding and publishing, and the illustrator Quint, resulted in a work that is both a literary and visual treasure. It exemplifies the early 20th-century appreciation for the art of bookmaking and the continued relevance of Balzac's social commentary. Collectors and scholars alike seek this edition for its historical and artistic value, making it a cherished piece in the collections of bibliophiles and institutions around the world.
