      MAURICE RÉALIER-DUMAS (1860-1928) INCANDESCENCE PAR LE GAZ. 1892.
      67 x 24 inches. Ch. Lorilleux & Co., Paris.
      Condition B+: repaired tears at edges; creases and abrasions in image. Two sheets.
      This image advertising a gas company is a textbook example of the style he created, (an elongated format, with a low key, understated, even minimalist and unadorned central figure). Curiously, to promote this company which is at the cutting edge of technology, Realier-Dumas evokes an earlier era: He employs a woman dressed in an antique style, lighting what appears to be an oil lamp, and he presents the company's address in mosaic. DFP II 731, Maitres pl. 23, Wember 678, Reims 980.
      Estimate $2,000-3,000
