This beautiful and rare Original French Stone Lithograph features one of the most iconic Art Nouveau illustrations ever made.

Printed in only three colors it features two stunning Art Nouveau figures against a stark black background, and is pure decorative art at its finest.

Signed by the renowned Scottish artists Herbert McNair (1868-1955), Frances MacDonald (1873-1921) and Margaret Macdonald (1865-1933), the full title is 'The Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts.. Open February till May' and it was designed as an advertising poster for the Institute's Fine Arts Exhibition of 1896.

Printed by Imprimerie Chaix and Edited by G Boudet, it is from the 1896 issue of Les Affiches Etrangeres lithographic posters in miniature.

'Les Affiches Etrangeres' were a series of miniaturised posters printed in Limited Edition (1025) and issued in Paris in 1896 to satisfy the demands of avid poster collectors who did not have room on their walls for the larger version and who wanted their posters on high quality paper.

The three artists, along with Charles Rennie MacIntosh (1868-1928), (who was the husband of Margaret Macdonald) were known collectively as the Glasgow Four or The Spook School and made a massive impact on not only Art Nouveau, but also Modern design.

Measuring 9" x 12 1/2" it has an uneven left edge (where it was removed from a binding) and a printers alignment mark lower right (to be expected on original stone lithographs) and is in very good and clean Antique condition.
