This is an original print that was the cover art for a 1934 French magazine. Cover art is highly collectible and has become more difficult to find in excellent condition with the passage of time as it is highly susceptible to rips, stains, and age discolorations. This one is in very clean, pristine condition. It features a lovely young woman tenderly talking to a butterfly on a summer day. She is wearing her sun bonnet and is enamored by her little "visitor". The image is done in soft pastel color tones and has a beautiful quality. Signed by the artist, Georges Leonnec. Leonnec was a well-acclaimed illustrator for popular, widely circulated magazines in France after WWI. Today his images are often recopied. This one is an original print of the time and NOT a recent reproduction! 8.75 x 9 inches in ; comes matted in a neutral tone 16 x 20 inch custom mat ready for a standard size frame. Please allow time for custom matting.
