Lithograph
Sheet size: 280 x 190 mm
Image size: 195 x 150 mm
Edition: Unknown; scarce – Signed in plate
Original lithograph, signed in the stone. From Chansons de Femmes by Paul Delmet. One of the greatest Belle Epoque albums. There were 50 copies on Japon paper and an unstated general edition on wove paper, of which this is one. Chansons de Femmes is now very rare, and probably had a very limited print-run. Please note that these lithographs have proved difficult to photograph. The images are surrounded by a thin black line, sometimes with slightly rounded corners, and printed over a creamy-yellow tint. Because our photographs were a bit wobbly, we have cropped the images just inside the line border, and the yellow tint has disappeared. Ref: Crauzat 197. Condition: Excellent.
