LUCIEN LEFEVRE (1862-1895)


49x34¾ inches, 124½x88¼ cm. Chaix, Paris.
Condition A: slight time-staining at edges.

Lefèvre, along with Georges Meunier, Lucien Baylac and René Péan, was one of Jules Chéret's disciples who worked as part of the creative team at the Chaix printing plant. Such a stable of impressive artists gave Chaix the opportunity to line up major accounts to try and replicate Chéret's successes. Lefèvre created a number of posters which, while technically and artistically proficient in their own right, clearly reflect the style of his mentor.
