Description: Artist: MANUEL ROBBE (1872-1936) Size: 37 x 51 1/2 in./93.8 x 131 cm Imp. Bougerie, Paris Although known for producing numerous decorative prints in a bold, robust style with Impressionistic overtones, Robbe's posters are exceedingly rare and, as with this two-sheet example, utilize more of a Japanese aesthetic. Here, two elaborately dressed ladies gesture in awe toward a L'Eclatante kerosene lamp, its light still brilliant against a painterly sunset sky.
Condition Report: B+/ Very slight tears at folds.
Dimensions: 37 x 51 1/2 in./93.8 x 131 cm
