‘Le Pont Royale’ is one of three images Nevinson completed of the famous bridges of Paris, the others being ‘Pont des Arts’ (1922) and ‘Pont Neuf’ (1922). This print can be viewed as Nevinson paying homage to both the great 19th century French etcher Charles Meryon, and the masters of 19th century Japanese woodblock printing such as Hiroshige and Hokusai
