Antique 19th C Century Listed KUPKA French ART NOUVEAU Print Lithograph Signed Magnificent Nude!

This phenomenal Art Nouveau lithograph or chromolithograph (same as a lithograph, but with several stones) on semi glossy paper,

was published circa 1895 in the French Art quarterly: "Le Journal de la Decoration", and created in lithographic form exclusively for that review.

It is signed "Kupka" in the plate.

This luxury publication edited by Armand Guerinet in Paris, is famous in its own right.

Issues are included in many Museums collections, including the Smithsonian and the Met. (See their online catalogs)

The piece represents a vigorous female sailor and musician from the ancient Mediterranean times, playing a giant lyre on a boat. Her brunette;s features are just beautiful And the nude is a perfection!

Hyper realistic, close to photography, it is set in a flat decorative environment, typical of Art Nouveau, that creates the most stunning visual contrast. You will of course smile at her fashion sandals!

REFERENCES: Francois Kupka is the French name for FrantiSek Kupka, (1871-1957) a Czech artist living in Paris, and one of the stars of Modern Art.

He is considered a father of abstraction, together with Kandinsky and Mondrian. His works are in the best Museums: Guggenheim, MOMA, Art Institute of Chicago, Musee d'Orsay, to name a few.

This is an early piece, when Kupka was into Art Nouveau, and still attached to realism. But you can already tell from this striking work, what a fantastic artist he would become in the early XXth Century.

The work is a perfection in the Art Nouveau style, streamlined, elegant, with a rare color harmony, and the scene absolutely memorable!

This totally unique piece will bring refinement to many decors, from Art Nouveau to Contemporary.

MEASUREMENTS:

Length: 12 3/4". Width: 9" (32 cm) by (23 cm).

CONDITION: In good condition. Strip of cream canvas from binding (left edge) wrinkling the paper slightly. Sheet is not very thick and has a number of light creases.

Framing will of course make this little noticeable. Colors still very vibrant.

Will be shipped "Expedited" from Paris, including insurance and signature at delivery.

MEASUREMENTS:

Length: 13". Width: 9" (33 cm) by (23 cm).

CONDITION: In good condition with a few flaws. Cream canvas used for binding left on the left edge wrinkling the paper lightly. Sheet is not very thick and has a number of light creases.

This should of course be greatly attenuated, if not eliminated altogether by framing.

Colors still very vibrant.
