Reine de Joie Color Lithograph after Toulouse-Lautrec
1896 lithograph in colors on wove paper after Toulouse-Lautrec. A lifetime impression.
Transcribed signature left edge below center. A fine example in olive, red, yellow, and black.
Transcribed in 1896 from Lautrec's 1892 full
size poster designed to publicize a notorious novel by Victor Joze, titled Reine de joie, moeurs du demi-monde. In
this scene, the gold-digging heroine, Helene Roland plants a kiss on the fat banker, Olizac. This image was published
in the monthly series Les Affiches Illustrees, a collection of small format poster images for collectors.
The series was published in 1896 by Ernest Maindron and printed by Imprimerie Eugene Verneau in Paris. Edition Size
