Rare Paul Chabas Lithograph
A rarely seen lithograph of a painting by the French artist Paul Émile Chabas (1869-1937).
The original painting, dating from circa 1915, is similar in its theme to his famous ‘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 toilette at the edge of a large lake with mountains in the background.
Printed by the respected company Braun et Cie and still with the Paris gallery label of Edouard Hautecœur, attached verso.
The overall diameter is 31 cm.
