Rare Original World War One Limited Ed. Signed/Numbered French Flameng Lithograph 1915 'Hommage Aux Heroes'.
A Significant work by the renowned French War artist Francois Flameng (1856-1923) is this beautiful and poignant homage to the fallen French soldiers in World War 1. The full title is 'Hommage Aux Heros Francais.. Inconnus et Sans Gloire' 'Hommage to the Unknown and Uncommemorated French Heroes'..and this lithograph is taken from his original pastel drawing executed while he was at the front as an Official War artist.
Featuring the Angel of Death placing wreaths of Laurel on the brave fallen soldiers it is a timely reminder, as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of 'the war to end all wars'.
Delicately colored it is from a limited edition of 100 and hand numbered 83/100 see picture 6.
Flameng became renowned for his paintings of WW1 and received the French Legion of Honour. Most of his work was donated to the Musee de L'Armee in 1920..making this signed lithograph extremely rare.
Signed by the artist in the print and also pencil signed it is dated 1915 and issued by Devambez Gr. France.
Measuring 20" x 15 1/2" it has some age soiling to the margins and edge and corner bends..but the subject is unmarked and in good Condition.
I have several other wonderful works by Francois Flameng listed. NN456, NN444, NN453.
