DescriptionHarold Presents Le Coupeur de Tetes (1920s). Fine/Very Fine on European Linen. French Grande (46" X 62.75").
Fans of magic and the macabre will surely find delight with this deliciously twisted French stone litho poster. Observers are invited to witness the reincarnation of the executioner of Paris, in what appears to be a magic show similar to that of Grand Guignol, a theater that specialized in naturalistic horror shows. Backed on linen with no touchup applied, this poster shows edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, mild creases, and small tears. There are minor nicks, pinholes, and unobtrusive stains. The poster is beginning to separate from the linen in some place at the edges, and the linen has been trimmed to the borders. Fine/Very Fine on European Linen.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
