104: Aix-les-Bains. 1933
Artist: LUCIEN-HECTOR JONAS (1880-1947) Size: 24 3/8 x 39 1/4 in./62 x 99.6 cm Imp. H. Chachoin, Paris Originally a Roman bath city, Aix-Les-Bains is still peppered with various Ancient Roman ruins. By the 1930s, it still retained that relaxing atmosphere as a resort village, offering spa activities and various outdoor sports. Here, the focus is on linking its history with the present-day, blue-hued tourists milling about statues of the Emperor Gratian on their way to a game of tennis.
