Description

Lunois (1863 – 1916) was a well known Parisian Impressionist painter and lithographer at the Turn of the Century, and the inventor of “Wash Lithography”, using tusch directly onto the litho stones to achive a loose, dream-like effect, This litho shows a panorama of upper class women appearing nearly stunned by the opulent surroundings of a then new concept of ‘Grand Magasin” – the department store. This print was sold by the famous Eduard Sagot, and was done on arches paper. A real bargain! Special: One tiny edge mending, overall mint.
