Hello

Can you give me a close up of the wording on this?

L'Estampe Moderne appeared in 1897-1899 as a series of 24 monthly fascicles, each of 4 original lithographs, priced at 3 francs 50 centimes and printed by Imprimerie Champenois of Paris. Many accomplished European Art Nouveau painters contributed works to this publication. The richly lithographed prints had as blind stamp or embossed device, the imprint of a young woman's profile in the lower right corner. The prints are much sought after in the current art world.

Hello,

I cannot read the name on this but, I can tell you this is one of the L'Estampe Moderne prints, the print is of Notre Dame or Reims Catherdals, in France. The print dates to the late 1800's.

Are you wanting a current market value for this? What size is this ?

Hello

That name does not come up as an artist from the 1800's. This can be valued without the artist name, these prints are sold quite often at high end auctions.

Hello

I am going to have to opt out of this. I have to have back surgery today, I will be out of commission for several days. One of the other expert may know this and can help you.
