Toulouse-Lautrec Lithograph~Limited Edition 1927 Sheet Music CoverToulouse-Lautrec Lithograph~Limited Edition 1927 Sheet Music CoverToulouse-Lautrec Lithograph~Limited Edition 1927 Sheet Music Cover

This is one of a pair of unique Rare small format limited edition Lithographs from a de Luxe portfolio I acquired recently by the iconic French Paris artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901).

It is taken from an original crayon lithograph to illustrate the sheet music for the song 'Eros Vanne' (Eros Vanquished), popularized by Lautrec's friend and muse Yvette Guilbert at La Scala..see picture #3.

It depicts two well dressed women at a bar with a naked and crippled Cupid.

Issued on fine Velin and signed in the print it is from a 1927 issue after Lautrec's demise, and uniquely printed in shades of green that highlight the pathos of the subject in a way that full color never could.

It exposes the poverty of the period in a macabre and challenging way. A rather confronting image demonstrating Lautrec's use of graphic art as a means of making slightly humorous comment on everyday life.

The original was executed in 1893/94 for La Revue Blanch and published by Henry Floury~Paris..and used as the title cover page for the sheet music.

Measuring 10" x 7 1/2" entire the subject is 5 1/2" x 7 1/2". There is some uniform yellowing of the paper, a faint crease in the top margin and a few small marks in the margin lower left. All commensurate with the age of the Lithograph. They do not affect the integrity of the piece and will not be seen once it is framed.

Visit item #RL00173 for the companion Lithograph..'The Actress Marcelle Lender'.
