This is a fine art lithograph. It’s an original work of fine art which was produced at the prestigious S2 Atelier in New York City in 1998. It was inspired by a poster first created in 1931.These fine art lithographs are recreations of the original. Great care was taken to precisely re-create the artists original image. Most of the chromists hand draw directly onto specially prepared surfaces that are then transferred onto lithographic plates. Lithography involves creating hand drawn plates, one for each color, which are then ‘pulled’ through antique printing presses one color at a time. The resulting lithograph is in pure color, as opposed to the dot structure which occurs in the photographic process of modern printing. At the heart of the S2 Atelier are it’s two rare, French made Marinoni Voirin ‘editioning’ printing presses ‘ they both date back to the mid 19th century. These are the best fine art lithographs made in the industry today. You cannot find anything better than these. Leon Dupin was born around 1900. In 1929, he began working at the lithography atelier of Joseph Charles. This engagingly celebratory image, toasting the good life, is typical of the graphic images that Dupin produced in Paris during the 1930s. This image shows Dupin’s skill in lithography by utilizing the same form three different ways to create transparency in the figure.His work is shown in the poster book Quard l’Affiche Faisait de la Reclaime.””
