A multi-stone original lithograph print of a figure in an interior, unsigned, from a 1948 posthumous printing by Mourlot after the original 1899 print "Interieur aux Tentures Roses I" by the important French Post-Impressionist artist EDOUARD VUILLARD (1868-1940). This is a true lithograph and not a simple reproduction. The sheet measures 12 3/4" by 9 3/4", the image measures 11 3/8" by 9", and the item as currently framed is 17" by 13 3/4". Vuillard needs little introduction to those who appreciate fine art. One of his paintings brought over $15 million at Christie's in November 2017, doubling the previous record, but many paintings have exceeded $1 million. The artist was a member of the Nabis movement that preceded and foreshadowed abstraction. In many of Vuillard's originals and graphic works, figures blend into their surroundings in a complex composition of color and pattern. His style is very recognizable and obviously appealing to collectors. This print very much resembles the 1899 edition though is smaller in size, and that is the principal way it can be identified as being from the much later, posthumous printing (the edition size said online to be 2500 examples). The sheet appears to have been laid down on a white card in recent times. The paper is toned, otherwise condition is excellent, the colors vigorous. Gold frame has age and is attractive.
