GEORGES DE FEURE (1868-1943)


31 1/2x24 1/2 inches, 80x62 1/4 cm. Bourgerie & Cie., Paris.
Condition A-: small repaired tear in right margin; minor creases and abrasions at edges.

The Almanach was a guide to Paris published by Ed. Sagot. Here, de Feure's impeccably-dressed young lady is using the guide to explore the city - finding herself at an art exhibition. She is alone in a crowd of men who are depicted darkly and monochromatically in the background. One of them appears to be staring at her, but she stands almost defiantly in the foreground. DFP-II 342, Wember 304, Maitres 1900 p. 27, Gold 79, Maindron 64, Art Nouveau p. 118.
