Ricardo Flores French Satirical Illustration Night Street Scene C.1905. Free USA shipping.
Original color magazine illustration lithographic print C.1905 cut from a magazine page after a work of art by listed artist Ricardo Flores. It is signed in the image "Ricardo Flores".
It is a night street scene with two middle age poor men talking. It is signed "Ricardo Flores" within the image lower right.
The caption below the scene reads in French:
"T'es tout vert... Es-tu malade?"
"Y a une heure que j'ai envie de suriner!".
A rough translation is :
"You're all green ... are you sick? "
"There is an hour that I want to seam!".
or: "You are quite green ... Are you sick?
"Has one hour There when I want of suriner!".
(The 2nd line seems to be not translating correctly online and I don't know French).
I have not examined it out of the wrapping. I don't know what magazine it is from but guarantee this is an original magazine illustration from the early 1900's.
Caricature and cartoon, in graphic art, comically distorted drawing or likeness, done with the purpose of satirizing or ridiculing its subject. Cartoons are used today primarily for conveying political commentary and editorial opinion in newspapers and for social comedy and visual wit in magazines.

Condition: This has been trimmed somewhat unevenly from a magazine page but a mat would be able to cover the uneveness. It has some age toning and some light soiling. There are no tears but there are some chips out of the edges. There is most likely text printed on the back. The plastic wrap has a small hole in the front but it hasn't affected the print.
The print has been placed against a sheet of white faced posterboard covered with a sheet of plastic wrap that has been scotch taped against the back. The back isn't completely sealed. I have not taken it apart because I think the paper might be brittle and I don't wish to damage it with handling.
