      • Sale 2356 Lot 163

        24 3/4x19 inches, 63x48 1/4 cm.
        Condition B+ / A-: minor repaired tears and creases in margins and corners. Hand-signed by the artist in blue pencil.
        Lobel's entire artistic legacy consists of only a few lithographs and two prestigious posters; one for the print dealer Pierrefort, and this one, for the 31st Salon des Cent. It is a shame that he didn't create more work, as his style reflects an intimate familiarity with Toulouse-Lautrec and the precepts of the Nabis. Here, the layout, drawing quality and masterly use of lithography (using the white of the paper to create the net) all show the marks of a first rate artist. This is the version before text. Tennis p. 10, Wine Spectator pl. 60 (var), Salon des Cent p. 67 (var), Meisterplakate 275, DFP-II 542 (var), L'Affiche Tennis (39).
