Vintage French Posters

For collectors finding favor with La Belle Epoque (the "Beautiful Era"), the period of French history dating from approximately 1871-1914, we've assembled a very nice collection of vintage French posters. This includes original antique lithograph posters as well as fine replicas of original vintage poster art, beautifully printed in Paris at the famed Mourlot studio.

This 40+ year period was a time of peace in Europe and France's "Third Republic," filled with new discoveries in technology and science. The prosperity in Paris allowed for a flourishing of the arts and the Belle Epoque posters featured here are, in part, a testament to the exhibitions, operas, theater productions, concerts, and large spectacles like the Moulin Rouge and The Folies Bergere taking place at the time. Here you'll find a selection of more than 100 turn-of-the-century posters from artists such as Ibels and Rochegrosse, and many from modern Masters such as Chagall, Miro, Braque, Leger, Dufy, Picasso and Matisse.

Pablo Picasso lithograph poster Traits, Tete de femme Pablo Picasso lithograph poster and collage | Traits, Tete de femme

Medium: lithograph, collage and stencil poster. This work consists of a lithograph mounted onto brown wove paper, with a collage of hand-cut newsprint letters and stenciled text in red and blue ink. On verso is a stamp stating that this affiche (poster) was issued in a limited edition of 60 and that this is copy number 1 (see photos).

The lithograph itself appears to be a slightly different state of "Tête de femme". It is known that Tete de femme (references Bloch 384; Mourlot 4) was executed by Picasso in 1945 and issued in an edition of 50 with Picasso's red pencil signature but with no plate signature. The lithograph offered here is printed on Arches laid paper and is signed in the stone, but is not hand-signed.

The size of the lithograph portrait is 11 3/4 x 8 1/4 inches (300 x 210 mm) and the full poster measures 19 3/4 x 13 inches (500 x 325 mm).

Condition: there are pinholes at each corner of the poster, with minor creasing throughout. The lithograph shows a horizontal crease near the top, where it is attached to the support sheet. Extremely rare!
