Sale 2476 Lot 150
GEORGES LEPAPE (1887-1971) [POUR L'ENFANCE SOIRÉE DE GALA ORGANISÉE PAR LA CROIX ROUGE.] Original gouache maquette. 1924.
36 3/4x33 1/4 inches, 93 1/4x84 1/2 cm.
Condition B: loss in lower left corner; staining in lower image and edges; abrasions and sharp crease in image; small holes in upper image. Painted on thick paper.
A study for Lepape's poster for a Red Cross sponsored gala. Although only a segment of the final image, we do notice that for the printed version the mustachioed man ultimately was given a slimmer physique and the typography is different. Weill 313 (var), Lepape p. 96 (var).
Estimate $10,000 - 15,000
