Stunning color lithograph from 1861 of a young woman called "Laure". Created by Lafosse after a work by Bernard Charles Chiapory (born 1811- no known date of death). Printed at Imprimerie Lemercier, Paris. The black paint covers most of the text but most of it can be seen with a strong light behind the print. It is still in beautiful condition with marks commensurate with age: some light stains on the face, a few scratches and surface flaws to the black paint. Highly collectible and ready to be framed in a new home! 62.6 x 47.9 cm / 24.4 x 18.5"
