Une charmeuse, 1892


This print was edited by Chromotypographie Booussod, Valadon & Co. and presented at Le Figaro Illustré in 1892.

Boussod, Valadon & Co. was a publisher and art gallery founded in Paris by Adolphe Goupil (1806-1893), having achieved strong international recognition. The gallery has published a large variety of prints, books and supported many artists from the French School during the XIXth Century, including Léon Girardet.

This print on cotton paper from 1892 is a rare example of the publisher quality work and the great art of Léon Girardet.

It is in good condition with exception for stains and some paper rip off at its right margin. It may be easily topped by a good quality passe-partout or showed as a mark of times on transparency of a glass frame which may be very interesting due the age of the artwork.
