Sheet size: 360 x 280 mm
Edition: 250 – Unsigned
This original lithograph by Paul Guiramand is copy 129/250 printed by Fernand Mourlot for an edition of Alcools by Guillaume Apollinaire, published by Éditions Lidis in 1966. The lithographic stones were effaced after the printing. This lithograph served as the frontispiece; in it, Guiramand pulls together Apollinaire’s great themes of Paris (with the Eiffel Tower suggested by the white shape on the vermilion background), modernity (the aeroplane) and love (represented by the grey-blue counterpoint of the female head and bust). Condition: Fine.
