Very rare original Toulouse-Latrec (1864-1901) lithograph issued as sheet music in 1895. Titled "Les Vieux Papillons" this sheet from the series "Melodies de Jean Richepin" was printed by C. Joubert, Paris in an edition of circa 250 impressions. It is the first published edition for this image. It is signed with the artist's monogram in the stone. Many of the great Art Nouveau and fin-de-siecle artists's work first appeared as posters, book illustrations, advertisements and in this case as sheet music. Of the copies known of this work there are examples in the collections of The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, The Museum of Modern Art in New York and The Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The sheet is complete in 4 pages and in very good condition. No tears, creases or repairs. The piece had been previously framed so the image area is lightly sunned but there is no mat burn. There's some old tape residue to 2 corners and some light paper toning. This is the original 1895 edition of "Les Vieux Papillons."
