C1899, PAUL CESAR HELLEU LITHOGRAPH, EDMOND SAGOT, ESTAMPES & AFFICHES ILLUSTREE. Paul Cesar Helleu's French exhibition poster,'Edmund Sagot: Estampes & Affiches Illustrees''39 bis Rue de Chateaudun, Paris', is a superb original example of his lithographic poster art, of the French posters from this Golden Age, and the graphic art of Paul Helleu.
It is printed upon thin, wove paper and with full margins as published by Edmund Sagot, Paris, and printed by Chaix, Rue Bergere No. 20, Paris in 1899, signed by the artist Paul Cesar Hellue within the matrix. In the late 1890's Helleu was approached by the print gallery dealer Sagot about making an advertisement poster for his business.
Helleu, one of the most highly regarded artists of women, was an obvious choice. Instead of featuring one of his archetypal drypoint prints of a woman's portrait, which Helleu would do so often for any of his clients, he cleverly shows a fashionable perspective customer sitting (presumably) within Sagot's store, leaning over and closely inspecting prints. The whole image is wonderfully appealing with the woman's hand reaching back, steadying herself as she's sitting sideways on her chair. Her whole body language speaks so eloquently of her interest in the work. 105.5 cm x 76 cm or 41 1/2 inches x 30 inches.
Some wear around the edges, but remaining at the original large size. Some minor creasing, due to being rolled, and linen backed. One small spot towards the upper left side.
