This is a matted French Art Nouveau lithograph that was the cover art for a French 1899 magazine. Magazine cover art is highly collectible and has become more difficult to find in excellent condition with the passage of time as it is susceptible to rips, stains, discoloring. This one is in pristine condition with NO age markings. It is done in soft neutral color tones and showcases a young woman at work with her drawing sketch pad on the shores of the river. The scroll-like motif frames her and is so typical of the Art Nouveau period. The image is signed by the artist. 7.75 x 11.25 inches in size. Comes matted in a neutral tone 16 x 20 inch custom mat ready for a standard size frame. This is an unusual find!
