This is a 1927 Art Deco lithograph that originally appeared in a French periodical. It was a story illustration for an article on Venice. It is an iconic image that speaks of the essence of the magical city of Venice. And it speaks to those who treasure the beauty, the aesthetic and travel memories of the historic city. The print was done with gold metallic inks. Metallic inks were used in French Art Deco lithographs in the 1920s and 1930s. They are specific to this time period and thus are rare and highly sought after. The golden bronze coloration is rich and lends to the beauty of the image. This image reflects a glimmer and sparkle with good lighting and would make for wonderful wall decor 8.5 x 11 inches in size. Comes matted in a neutral tone 16 x 20 custom mat that works in a standard size frame. Please allow time for custom matting.
