This is a beautiful original French Art Nouveau lithograph that dates to c1900. It came from an unbound portfolio called the “Album De la Decoration” which was a collection of design plates for decorative murals, textiles, panels, etc. This lithograph is a decorative floral panel featuring "Les Pavots", the poppy. This design has wonderful Art Nouveau elements; it is richly detailed with organic motifs of floral patterning. It showcases the poppy against a natural landscape and "framed" by sinuous curves of the natural flower and its stem. It captures a sense of movement. Take time to note the detailing and the patterning of the design. The image has strong color and is in pristine condition with no evidence of discolorations, foxing, or markings of age. Signed in stone by the artist in lower left. 13.75 x 9 inches in size. It is original to c1900 and NOT a recent reproduction.
