This is one of a pair of unique Rare small format limited edition Lithographs from a de Luxe portfolio I acquired recently.
Issued on fine Velin and signed in the print by renowned Art Nouveau artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec 1864 - 1901.
From a 1927 issue after his demise. Uniquely printed in shades of green that highlight the pathos of the subject in a way that full color never could.
It exposes the poverty of the period in a macabre and challenging way. Featuring as the main subject a naked and crippled child with his leg in plaster and head bandaged.. A rather confronting image, so typical of Lautrec. The original was executed in 1893/94 for La Revue Blanch and published by Henry Floury~Paris..and used as the title cover page for sheet music 'Eros Vanne' sung by Yvette Guilbert at La Scala see pic 3.
Measuring 10" x 7 1/2" entire the subject is 5 1/2" x 7 1/2". There is some uniform yellowing of the paper, a feint crease in the top margin and a few small marks in the margin lower left. All commensurate with the age of the Lithograph. They do not affect the integrity of the piece and will not be seen once it is framed.
