Rare Toulouse-Lautrec 'Moulin Rouge La Goulue' stone Lithograph in 7 stages (plates).
I offer here a truly unique set of 7 lithographs by the great French Art Nouveau artist and poster maker, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901).
This is a rare opportunity to own a stunning Toulouse-Lautrec French stone lithograph in all seven stages of the lithographic process. Not only do you get the finished lithograph to frame but also all the 6 stages of color printing that make up the final work as well!!
From Edouard Juliene's 'Les Affiches de Toulouse-Lautrec' and printed by Affiches Americaines, CH Levy, 10 rue Martel, Paris, in 1950, it is one of Lautrec's best loved studies from the Moulon Rouge.
Entitled 'Concert Bal Tous la Soirs La Goulue' it is printed on fine water-marked wove paper, signed bottom left and published by Andre Seuret.
The seven stages are the 6 different color stones used to complete the lithograph. Beginning with yellow, then red, then blue then black. Plus a couple in the mid mix stage... And of course the final example (see pictures #1 and #2).
A fascinating example of the printer's art for either the collector of early lithography or the lover of fine art.
Plate size is 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" and the condition is 'fine'.
Originally printed in large format poster form in 1891 by Mourlot et Cie, Paris, and now very rare (the last sale brought over $3000,000 USD), this smaller format poster is taken from (and identical to) the 1898 Les Maitres de L'Affiches series lithograph, which currently is selling for around $8,000.00 USD. Making this a unique opportunity to own one of the masters most iconic lithographs in all its color layer stages, at an extremely affordable price. It won't hang around for long....
