Offering a large, vintage 1920's, framed lithograph by painter Francois Laubnitz.
Fr. Laubnitz was actually a pseudonym, and the painter's real name was Ernst Max Pietschmann. He was German not French, and he painted in the early 20th century. This work was his paean to the glory of motherhood.
This magnificent lithograph is in its original, carved and gilded wood frame, and under the original glass. It measures 42" across and 23 ½" top to bottom. The brown backing paper is mostly gone, and has exposed a thick piece of cardboard. There are two newer hooks and a secure hanging wire at the back (which replaced the old wire and hooks). I'm uncertain as to when that was done as this work hung in my aunt's home for many decades.
Featured is a fabulously pretty, golden haired mother kneeling beside her golden haired infant. A toddler sits next to her and peeking out from behind the drapes are two cherubs.
No damage to this glorious litho. The colors are still wonderful and the glass has protected it from stains and insect damage.
The wood frame has some nicks and scratches, and as I mentioned, the paper at the back is gone and the cardboard exposed. The litho however is seated securely and has no waving of the paper.
Due to its size, this framed art work would have to go freight. I will connect you to a reputable shipper and arrange for the packing and shipping. The buyer is responsible for those fees and will pay the shipper directly. For a shipping quote please provide your address with zip code.
