Original lithograph in colors on Arches paper by Michael Delacroix. Signed and numbered in pencil. Titled “Aux Bon Vivant”, this work shows a Parisian street scene in winter with a charming French cafe called “Aux Bon Vivant”, brightly painted in red. Other storefronts in bright colors contrast with the pale winter colors. With its playing children and strolling adults, this Parisian street scene is full of vitality. A classic image from a leading artist in the naif tradition. From the 1979 limited edition with full margins, hand-signed and numbered in pencil by the artist. (There was also a later edition with a printed signature done in 1985; this is not from that later edition.)
