More About this Item


Description: Mucha Foundation Lefevre Utile Sarah Bernhardt Lithograph 1896 Museum Edition 12/35 Condition: Mint, unused, never framed nor hung Product description: This is a Museum Edition, hand pulled, Mucha Foundation endorsed, fine art lithograph of Alphonse Mucha's, Sarah Bernhardt poster for Lefevre-Utile (LU). This is ME 12/35. In this advertising poster, Sarah Bernhardt lent her image to Mucha for his commission from the French biscuit company, Lefevre-Utile (LU). This was the only version of this point of purchase advertising poster to bear the printed legend in the lower bottom left: "Sarah Bernhardt (La Princess Lointaine)". This hand pulled lithograph preserves Mucha's classic work art. It was pulled on Rives BFK archival, acid free paper one colour at a time, from separate plates, in perfect registration for a limited edition of 300 pieces. The edition is numbered 1/300 to 300/300. There is also a museum edition of 35 (1/35 to 35/35). The chromist created this image by hand-drawing directly onto specially prepared surfaces, which were then chemically transferred onto lithographic plates, one plate for each color. The plates used to create this edition have been destroyed. The lithograph was printed at S2 Atelier in New York City by master printers, under the supervision of Technical Director, Raymond Mazza. This piece was hand-drawn at the Mucha Foundation while viewing the original - so colors are a perfect match. You almost cannot distinguish it from the original. Condition Report: excellent
