Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec "L'Artisan Moderne" Lithograph

$ 55,000
  • Description
    A rare and well-sought variant of the celebrated poster "L'Artisan Moderne," by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, this special lithograph includes a seldom seen addition of the text reading "Qui?" in the upper right hand portion of the work. Completed as a favor to a friend André Marty, a publisher and dealer in the emerging field of graphic arts, to celebrate the founding of his galleries with the same moniker as Toulouse-Lautrec's work, this particular lithograph demonstrates beautifully the artist's homage to the Japanese woodblock prints he so admired. A perfect study in the dynamism of a picture plane and a celebration of the power of line, the composition depicts a lady in her boudoir being attended to by an artisan and her maid.
