Brel, le 17 octobre 1961, ignore qu'il chantera ce soir, à l'Olympia, dans un contexte tragique: la «dispersion» d'une manifestation d'Algériens, qui fera plus de 200 morts. Les personnes appréhendées seront conduites vers un «périmètre de regroupement» situé devant l'Olympia, mais le public n'entendra rien de cette chasse à l'homme.
53 x 80 cm. Tirage postérieur sur papier baryté.
Encadrement bois noir et passe-partout tournant.
Edition 1/1. Signé.

On October, 17, 1961, Jacques Brel was oblivious to the fact that tragedy was about to occur during his performance at the Olympia: the “dispersion” of an Algerian demonstration would provoke over 200 deaths. Arrested demonstrators would be taken to a “regrouping zone” in front of the Parisian concert hall. The audience was completely unaware of the manhunt outside their door.
53 x 80 cm. Printed later on fiber-based paper.
Black wooden frame, and mat.
Edition 1/1. Signed.
