Paul Chabas Lithograph
Circular framed lithograph of a painting by the French artist Paul Émile Chabas (1869-1937).
The original painting, which dates from circa 1915, is similar in its theme to his well known ‘September Morn’ painted in 1912, which so upset the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice as being purportedly immoral, showing as it did a young nude woman standing in shallow water in the open air.
This delightful picture, painted in soft shades and still in its original circular frame, depicts two young ladies attending to their tiolette at the edge of a lake with mountains in the background.
Part only of some lettering can be seen half hidden by the frame at the bottom of the picture, and, if it could be fully seen would probably reveal the name or initials of the printer.
A small label affixed to the back indicates that the image was framed by F. Coudert in Nimes.
The overall diameter is 34 cm and the image alone 27.5 cm.
