L'Illusion by H. Bellery-Desfontaines LSP141 $250
Each print measures approximately12 inches by 16 inches.
These highly sought-after prints come from the L'Estampe Moderne,
one of the most influential Art Nouveau publications of
the day. Many prominent artists of the day
contributed, including Darbour, Hans Christiansen, Louis
Rhead, Evenpoel, and Alphonse Mucha who created the
cover design for the publication.
Published between May 1897 and April 1899 by Champenois,
each album contained four original lithographs, with
subscribers receiving two extra lithographs per year,
the "Planches de prime."
Each plate bears the signature L'Estampe Moderne mark, a blindstamp
of a woman's head in the bottom right-hand corner which
is the mark of the authenticity of the issue. The
tissue guards for each work contain snippets of poetry
or literature related to the image, chosen by editors
Charles Masson and H. Piazza. Prints measure 12 inches
by 16 inches and are printed on thick creamy paper.
Please note these prints have been highly reproduced
over the years, but what we are offering are the
ORIGINAL authentic lithographs and not later copies.
