"Au Theatre" by Pierre Bonnard
Color Lithograph, 1899, B. 67, From the Album "Some Aspects of Life in Paris", ed. 100 plus proofs, of which a few were numbered and signed. The image measures 7-78 x 15-3/4, is signed in pencil by the artist, on the full sheet as originally issued. There are varied degrees of staining from previous acidic mounts, and some short repaired edge tears in the large margins. Within the image the paper is bright and the colors amazingly fresh and unfaded. It is unusual to find a signed impression of this print, especially with the colors so fresh.
