An exquisite French lithograph from right after WWII called "Montmartre", with vibrant colors and a lot of poetry!
The piece is dated 1951 and has, besides the famous Moulin Rouge at the bottom of the hill, all kinds of lovely vintage details.
The colors are fresh, in a harmony of light red, orange and yellow,with a touch of green.
There is a bustling cafe terrace in the center, with waiters in white jackets,
a cop with the outfit and cap of the time on the left, and what looks like a Wallace fountain further on,
a flower street vendor by the curb (they have since mostly disappeared)
For once it is not raining! but it seems cold outside as people are wearing Winter coats and hats.
Little car traffic of course, this is 1951.
I think I see a black Citroen car, "la Traction" the star of the French 50s, parked right in front of the Moulin Rouge, and recognizable at its spare wheel at the back.
The piece is signed: "Guigner" in the plate, in the lower right corner.
This delightful artwork will bring a touch of Paris nostalgia to any decor!
In very good condition. Only very slight creases along the borders.
Length: 16 1/2". Width: 13 3/4".
( 42 cm) by ( 35 cm)
Will be shipped "EXPEDITED" from Paris, 5 to 7 days, including online tracking (US, Canada, Europe) insurance and signature at delivery.
