Maximilien Luce (1858-1941)
Original color lithographic poster, printed by Chaix, Paris, France 1897. Condition: Near Mint (A) , not backed.
Sheet size: 15.5 H. X 11.25 W.
This plate is a small-format, lithographic reduction of the original poster. Printed in 1898 for the subscription series "Les Maitres de l'Affiche" it carries a blind stamp on the lower right corner which distinguishes the series. Published for the poster enthusiast of the time, this series of 256 color lithographic plates were delivered to monthly subscribers in packages of four during the Belle Epoque period in Paris (1895-1900).

The collection was reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller 11 x 15 inch format. The individual plates were issued as separate numbered sheets with the printer's name, Imprimerie Chaix, in the margin at the bottom left hand corner. They remain highly desirable and are increasingly hard to find.
