Lithograph on paper of a World War I soldier, 12" by 9 1/4" inside the mat (20" by 17" framed), signed and dated in the plate 1915, by the important Swiss-born artist THEOPHILE-ALEXANDRE STEINLEN (1859-1923). Steinlen was born in Lausanne on Lake Geneva in 1859. After training at a textile mill in eastern France, he moved to Paris and the Montmartre literary and art scene. He found the scene creatively nourishing, and went on to spend most of the rest of his life there. Steinlen interacted with the avant-garde art crowd at Le Chat Noir, creating Belle Epoque poster images for the likes of Aristide Bruant. Between 1883 and the end of his life he created thousands of drawings and lithographs for magazines and other publications, a number of which fetch very handsome sums today at auctions of works on paper. This example has suffered from careless handling, stored evidently in moist conditions. There is heavy browning and mottling over most of the portion of the print that is visible inside the mat; the remainder of the sheet is not discolored like this. A paper restorer could likely remove or significantly minimize this situation. The print is NOT laid down on board.
