Collection of Chic Lithographs By Paul Colin

These would look fabulous as a focal point on a large wall in a salon type hanging. I saw these in an auction catalog and was amazed that such a collection could be intact. Born in 1892, Paul Colin was one of France’s greatest poster artists and was made famous in 1925 by his poster for the Revue Nègre, which helped to launch the career of Josephine Baker (who became his mistress).He worked for over forty years in the theatre, creating not only posters but also numerous sets and costumes. This set of 44 lithographs was published in an edition of only 500 and is a very rare piece of history.
