Antique STEINLEN Listed 1903 Print/Lithograph NUDE Celebrating Science Signed EXTRAORDINARY!

This is an extraordinary Steinlen print, a lithograph signed in the plate and dated 1903, which shows a stunning nude holding a banner celebrating science and work, to a cheering crowd.

All Steinlen's artistic qualities are present in this piece: darkness/"chiaroscuro" and extreme light, muscular strength, socially realistic faces, and altogether what could be called a populist surrealism.

The nude is completely surreal, with a quality announcing Fritz Lang's heroin in the movie: "Metropolis" (1927)

This artwork was the front of a program distributed for a special event in Paris which celebrated Science and Art. The speakers were also celebrities of the time: among others, Sully Prudhomme, the first Literature Nobel Prize, Dr Roux, Pasteur's collaborator and co-founder of the Pasteur Institute, and Jules Massenet, the music composer.

Steinlen was born in Switzerland but lived mostly in Paris. His works are in major Museums.

This is a fantastic Steinlen to own, one of his best in my opinion.
