Lautrec Lithograph 'Yvette Guilbert' France 1930.
Yvette Guilber (1867-1944) made her stage debut in Paris in 1887 and her unusual height and singing voice soon made her an attraction at La Moulin Rouge in Montmartre, where her plunging necklines and long black gloves became her trade mark.
She became a favourite subject for artists, especially Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901), who captured her many times on canvas and poster, and she is now synonymous with his work from that era.
This fine limited edition lithograph..entitled 'Taking a Curtain Call' was originally created in 1900 as an advertising poster but was never used. It shows the Japanese influence of minimal line and limited palette popular in Paris at the time. From the series 'Posters of Toulouse-Lautrec' issued in Paris by Imprimerie Julien in 1930...it is NOT a current reproduction.
Measuring 14" x 10" it is un-signed and carries the reference number XXXII lower right.
I have several other fine Lautrec Lithographs listed.
