Title: Monks Hood from "La Plante et Ses Applications Ornamentale", by Eugene Grasset, published by Eugene Levy
Size: Image 10"x14.5", Sheet 13"x18"
Comments: Very scarce color print from famed Art Noveau French portfolio which devoted to modern artistic designs inspired by specific plants and flowers. The noted poster artist Grasset oversaw the contributions by a number of different artists in this work. This is a "pochoir" print, a uniquely French process which used watercolors applied by stencil to produce rich color and subtle detail. Pochoir was a very expensive and demanding process, and modern techniques cannot simulate the subtle quality of these original prints.
Condition: Fine, excellent color and fine paper quality, very slight wear at sheet edges. Unmatted and unframed.
