Exposition du Centenaire de la Lithographie (1895). Frédéric Hugo d’Alési (Romanian-French, 1849-1906). Colour lithograph. V&A.
A poster advertising a centennial exhibition of Lithography at the Galerie Rapp, Paris, in 1895. Frédéric d’Alési worked mainly in Paris. In this Paris scene (the Eiffel Tower is in the distance), he depicts a fashionably dressed woman of the 1890s admiring prints at an outdoor print booth. Although the place where the exhibition is being held - Galerie Rapp - is mentioned, no dates or opening times appear.
