Description
This evocative illustration depicts Victor Hugo, the poet, playwright and activist, seated with his granddaughter Jeanne, circa 1871. Hugo was the author of "Hunchback of Notre Dame" and "Les Miserables". He suffered great loss during his life, including his son Charles in the Siege of Paris by Prussian forces (Charles may have been the father of Jeanne). This tender moment was captured by young Spanish artist David Vierge (1851 - 1904). Published in Hugo's 1874 "L'Annee Terrible" ("The Terrible Year"), a series of poems that deal with the Siege and the trauma of losing his son, it is now in the public domain.
