      GEORGES DE FEURE (1868-1943) [LE JOURNAL DES VENTES.] 1898.
      25 1/4x17 inches, 64x43 1/4 cm. Le Mercier, Paris.
      Condition B+ / A-: expertly-repaired tears at edges, one into upper text. Mounted on paper.
      "One of the most opulent and evocative images of the Belle Epoque and deservedly de Feure's most celebrated poster" (De Feure p. 71). Jane Abdy considers this "de Feure's finest poster, and one of the most beautiful of the whole period" (Abdy p. 156). The Journal des Ventes was a Belgian auction journal. The image of the fox, depicted in lower text area, is a nod to the publisher, Charles Vos, as vos means "fox," in Dutch. It is rare to find this poster with text. DFP-II 351, Maitres 146, Abdy p. 150, The Poster 43, De Feure 66, Affichomanie 125.
