PRIVAT-LIVEMONT (1861-1936) [MICHIELS FRÈRES.] 1902. 29 1/4x16 3/8 inches, 74 1/4x41 1/2 cm. Condition A: minor creases in margins and image. Matted and framed. Unexamined out of frame. The Michiel Brothers ran a tree nursery, and as Livemont's exquisite design suggests, they appear to have specialized in flowering shrubs and fruit trees. The mother and child he illustrated are designed according to his flawless Art Nouveau style. From the elegant, stylized formality of the flowing hair to the meticulous white outlining, it is an impeccable design. The pastoral colors are in keeping with the subject of the poster. This is the version before text. Belle Epoque II 103, Gold 38.
