EDMOND FRANÇOIS AMAN-JEAN (1858-1936) [TÊTE DE FEMME, DE PROFIL À GAUCHE.] Lithograph. Circa 1897.
22 1/4x16 3/4 inches, 56 1/2x42 1/2 cm.
Condition B+: foxing in margins and image; hand-signed and numbered 22 in pencil, from an edition of 100. Matted and framed. Unexamined out of frame.
Aman-Jean, born just outside of Paris, studied at L''École des Beaux-Arts. A French Symbolist painter, he was part of a group of artists derisively nicknamed "Les Pompiers" ("Firefighters") by the Impressionists. Best known for his female portraits, he also created murals, lithographs and posters. The style of most of his work can be identified by image-building concentric circles, but with faces devoid of distinct outline.
