An original turn of the century print, apparently from a publication of the era, featuring a cabman and an elegantly dressed woman walking away, signed at lower left corner by the noted Spanish artist FRANCISCO XAVIER (JAVIER) GOSE (1876-1915). This original lithograph is not behind glass and is loose in the current framing. The measurement of the sheet is approximately 12" by 9" (19" by 17" in the framing). There is a tear at top as shown, and a slight crease at right. Gose was born in Lleida, Spain, an ancient Catalonian town between Barcelona and Zaragoza. He studied at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona, and spent the years 1900-1914 in Paris, chronicling the bohemian and society lives he observed there---the cafe scene, prostitutes, strollers, horse racing, Montmartre and more. This print is from 1901. Gose's work seems to bridge late Belle Epoque and Art Deco. A very appealing authentic lithograph, despite the tear, which can be minimized or repaired.
