Description

A groom is smiling while holding his hat in one hand. In the background stands the bride, a strong, sturdy kind of woman, with hands on her hips.

This picture shows a scene from the play Les noces de Bouchencœur (Bouchencœur’s wedding), a comedy in three acts, mixed with songs, written by E. Labiche with A. Monnier and E. Martin as collaborators. It was created in Paris on June 10, 1857, at the Palais-Royal, with Grassot in the leading part.

The caption reads in the original French: Palais-Royal. — Les Noces de Bouchencœur.
