Original. Presented in a 16" x 20" acid free archival museum mat. There is an original painting by De Feure titled "La Botaniste" in which this woman, contemplates a flower with intensityt, and is surrounded by many more flowers. To create this powerful poster advertising an exhibition at the Salon des Cent, De Feure simply transferred the woman's image faithfully on the lithographic stone and eliminated some of the foliage; naturally, when printed, the image came out reversed. In addition, other than her flesh tones, all the colors are altered; even the eyes are changed from blue to brown.
