Student charity party in Toulouse 1909
Paul Dupuy Museum
Color lithograph (156 x 113 cms), 1909
The “student charity parties” organized by the General Association of Toulouse Students (AGET) from 1886 are a legacy of integration rituals from the Middle Ages, as well as the channeling of student energy for philanthropic purposes: every year during carnival, the association organizes a large masked ball whose profits go to social work. From 1896, the ball was announced by a poster from a competition in which local artists participated - Marius Jognarelli (1896), Jean André Rixens (1902) Jules Lartigue (1908), Georges Gros (1914)… This tradition disappears at the time of the First World War.
