AN OUTSTANDING LITHOGRAPH

From a study realized in 1883 for one of the greatest painting : “ "Une baignade à Asnières" / "Bathing in Asnières" (1884).
& for the first time in the world in LITHOGRAPH.

From the drawing to its printing, this lithograph has been entirely realized by hand.

REMOVAL OF THE DRAWING ON THE STONE AFTER PRINTING

Once the printing of the lithograph is finished, each drawing is systematically destroyed after use.
The lithographer puts down some  hydrochloric acid directly on the stone.
Then this stone is grained in order to erase totally the drawing.

Its printing is only issued once and in compliance with the number of expected editions.
