GEORGES DE FEURE (1868-1943)

Condition A-: minor repaired tears and restoration along horizontal fold. Matted and framed.

The "earliest known poster by de Feure . . . Le Diablotin was a Brussels-based journal of which eighteen issues were published between 28th August and 25th December 1892" and for which de Feure also designed the cover of the last issue (De Feure p. 67). "Technically, Le Diablotin is a virtuoso performance, amply demonstrating de Feure's early and total mastery of the art of lithography and its potential in the field of poster design" (ibid). DFP-II 345, Reims 609, De Feure 57.
