From the same luxury French Art Nouveau Art Quarterly "Le Journal de la Decoration" (similar to l'Estampe Moderne) as my items #1569PNT and #1570PNT,

this is an exquisite scene by Josef Max Colombus (Max Colombo) 1877-1970, a German artist, showing Jugendstil dancers in a Greek setting. Circa 1890-1900.

The lithograph which is signed "MC" in the plate, was printed on thick paper and presented in a portfolio, unbound and with full margins.

The French wording "par Colombo" implies this is an original lithograph created for the review. And not an offset "apres Colombo".

It is interesting to see that French Art Nouveau magazines were often commissioning German, Austrian or Swiss artists, like Karl Angst for the cover of "L'IMAGE", which I had recently, to do artworks for them.

Starting in 1905, the "Journal de la Decoration quarterly" issues seem to have been gathered by Hoffman in Stuttgart, into an annual German edition: "Dekorative Vorbilder"

Max Colombo's dance, though cleverly looking like a traditional scene on a Greek vase, is completely modern, with realistic characters and a totally innovative tribal atmosphere.

The colors are gorgeous! a harmony of beige, ocher, cream and burnt orange.

Original and refined, this lithograph will bring a strong decorative touch to any decor, from antique to contemporary.

MEASUREMENTS: Length: 13 3/4". Width: 9 3/4".

CONDITION: The lithograph has a linen backing which makes it sturdier, and also conveniently hides the minor loss it has at 3 corners.

Will be shipped "Expedited" from Paris including insurance and signature at delivery.
