            Feb. 06, 2024

            Original Vintage French Lac D'Annecy Poster by Hugo d'Alesi 1900 PLM

            Est: $2,000 - $3,000

            Lac d'Annecy (Lake Annecy in English) is a bucolic area of the French Alps, near the Swiss border. For centuries it has been prized for its dramatic beauty, but surged in popularity in the early 1900s when the expansion of trains made it more accessible. This poster promotes exactly that; hop aboard the Paris - Lyon- Mediterranee (P.L.M.) train and several hours later, a boat will meet you at the Lac d'Annecy station for transport to the resort towns and thermal baths that line the Lake. The beauty of the Lake is on full display in this poster, with a dramatic sunset beginning to dip behind the peaks of the Alps. Seagulls graze the water as the boat comes to pick us up for our vacation. Hugo d'Alesi (1849-1906) created this stunning poster. Born in Romania, d'Alesi was one of the first true poster artists and he worked almost exclusively for the P.L.M. train company. He printed his posters in an elaborate fashion that often incorporated more than 15 colors, which gave them a rich, watercolor effect. His hundreds of poster designs were well-loved by all of France, including some famous artists. Paul Cezanne once said, "I should like to do decorative landscapes like Hugo d'Alesi, yes, with my small sensibility". This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.

            Original 19th C. French Travel Poster - Lac D 'Annecy

            Est: $1,200 - $1,800

            Hugo d'Alesi (French / Romanian, 1849-1906 - also known as Friedrich Hugo Alesi or Friedrich Hugo Alessi). "Lac D"Annecy" lithograph in colors, linen backed, ca. 1900. An original French travel poster on linen by Friedrich Hugo d'Alesi who was best known for his exceptional travel posters commissioned by railroad lines. This composition features Lake Annecy in the Haute Savoie with a view of La Tournette which rises 2500 meters from the lake. In the foreground, D'Alesi featured the boat La France which would later sink; this location has become a favorite diving spot. A stunning original French travel poster by Hugo d'Alesi mounted in an attractive custom frame. Size (sight view): 40.75" L x 28.25" W (103.5 cm x 71.8 cm) Hugo d'Alesi was among the earliest artists to design posters for French railways. His posters were printed via a process called simile-aquarelle (meaning "faux watercolor"). The final images were comprised of as many as 20 different colors, resulting in rich imagery that was more detailed and painterly than later travel posters. Unfortunately, the process was very expensive process and eventually drove D'Alesi into bankruptcy. D'Alesi's posters had many admirers throughout the world including Paul Cezanne, who stated, "I should like to do decorative landscapes like Hugo d'Alesi, yes, with my small sensibility" (Source: Swann Galleries - Cezanne p. 232).

            Connemara.

            Est: $1,400 - $1,700

            ARTIST: F. HUGO D'ALESI (1849-1906) SIZE: 35 1/4 x 48 3/4 in./89.6 x 124 cm PRINTER: Imp. A. Bellier, Paris (not shown) DESCRIPTION: “Connemara is a savage beauty.” That’s how Oscar Wilde described the unspoiled magnificence of the Gallway country town whose name translates from the Irish as “Conneely’s Village.” In Connemara, the light constantly changes the mood and tone of the landscape, and perhaps no artist was better suited to set this on paper than d’Alesi. Long regarded the jewel of Ireland, the promotion is an extremely rare foreign foray for the French designer, though it’s possible that the image was intended for distribution in Paris. Whatever the situation, the artist is as comfortable with the gothic chill of a 6th century graveyard as he is with the brooding thrill of the dewy, undulant landscape.

            Original 19th C. French Travel Poster - Lac D 'Annecy

            Est: $1,400 - $2,100

            **First Time At Auction** Hugo d'Alesi (French / Romanian, 1849-1906 - also known as Friedrich Hugo Alesi or Friedrich Hugo Alessi). "Lac D"Annecy" lithograph in colors, linen backed, ca. 1900. An original French travel poster on linen by Friedrich Hugo d'Alesi who was best known for his exceptional travel posters commissioned by railroad lines. This composition features Lake Annecy in the Haute Savoie with a view of La Tournette which rises 2500 meters from the lake. In the foreground, D'Alesi featured the boat La France which would later sink; this location has become a favorite diving spot. A stunning original French travel poster by Hugo d'Alesi mounted in an attractive custom frame. Size (sight view): 40.75" L x 28.25" W (103.5 cm x 71.8 cm) Hugo d'Alesi was among the earliest artists to design posters for French railways. His posters were printed via a process called simile-aquarelle (meaning "faux watercolor"). The final images were comprised of as many as 20 different colors, resulting in rich imagery that was more detailed and painterly than later travel posters. Unfortunately, the process was very expensive process and eventually drove D'Alesi into bankruptcy. D'Alesi's posters had many admirers throughout the world including Paul Cezanne, who stated, "I should like to do decorative landscapes like Hugo d'Alesi, yes, with my small sensibility" (Source: Swann Galleries - Cezanne p. 232). Please note: This is an original linen-backed poster; it is not a reproduction.

Hugo d’Alesi, Paris DESCRIPTION: In another intoxicating dream-vision of rail travel to Venice, d’Alesi emphasizes the splendor of the local aquatic travel, from modest gondolas to statuesque sailboats. The various pinks of the architecture, sails, and sun-setting clouds add a quality of saccharine bliss that contrast beautifully with the sea-green canal below. (Art Nouveau; Travel; Italian)

From our vantage point in the Grand Canal, Venice’s treasures are laid out before us: St. Mark’s Square and the Basilica in the background, the gondolas, the campanile adorned with the city’s emblematic griffin, and maidenly floral offerings—all of them bound by the pellucid light of ethereal splendor.

Condition B+: replaced losses, repaired pin holes and extensive overpainting in margins; overpainting in upper image. Hugo d'Alési's posters were not only used by the French railway companies to encourage travelers to buy tickets on their trains; the images were also repurposed without the names of the train lines and employed pedagogically. His travel advertisements bear the imprint "Affiches simile-aquarelle," while these geographical teaching tools bear the imprint "Tableaux Scolaires." The latter were printed on a higher quality paper than the train posters and bear the name and address of the Parisian paper maker, Vidalon. There are also slight differences in the typography between the posters and the school images, mainly among the titles. The school posters also feature a small crest in the margins. Le Dauphiné is the former name of the French province which today would be recognized as Isère, Drôme, and Hautes-Alpes. To promote travel to the region, d'Alési depicts a tiny portion of the extraordinary "balcony road" (completed in 1872) in the gorge carved out of the limestone cliffs by the Bourne River. In the vignette, one sees some of the incredible hanging houses of Pont-en Royans and the Picard Bridge.

Condition B+: replaced losses and overpainting in margins; creases and minor restoration in image. Romanian-born Frédéric Hugo d'Alési was one of the earliest artists to design posters for the French railway companies. They were printed using a process akin to chromolithography, called simile-aquarelle ("faux watercolor"), that required up to 20 different colors to render the final image, making them much more richly printed, detailed and painterly than the travel posters from subsequent decades. By some accounts, he designed "hundreds for the railway companies" (Hillion p. 278). It was such an expensive process that it drove the artist into bankruptcy shortly before his premature death. D'Alési's posters caught the eye of many in France and around the world, including Paul Cézanne, who commented, "I should like to do decorative landscapes like Hugo d'Alési, yes, with my small sensibility" (Cezanne p. 232). Orientalist p. 34.
