Extremely Rare Original signed French Lithograph 'L'Ermitage' 1900.

This is probably the most iconic and valuable of all the French Art Nouveau collectors series Lithographs..and considered by art critics to be the artisrs finest work.

Designed by French Symbolist Art Nouveau artist Paul Berthon (1872-1909), the full title is L'Ermitage Revue Illustree, but it is universally known as 'L'Ermitage'.

From the iconic French lithographic series Les Maitres de L'Affiche (the Masters of the Poster), it is plate 227 issued in 1900, and bears the blind stamp of authenticity lower right.

It features a stunning stylized red headed beauty, surrounded by lilies (the epitome of virtue and innocence) and is one of the most recognizable designs of the Fin de Siecle (end of the century) Art Nouveau era, and has an almost spiritual atmosphere redolent of stained glass windows. It features on the cover of many books about the era.

Signed bottom left, published by Imp. Chaix, Paris, and measuring 11 3/8" x 15 3/4", it has a small tear bottom centre and a slight crease top right (both of which will frame out completely) and is in very good Antique condition.
