Encre L. Marquet original vintage poster from 1892. Linen backed. Very good condition. La Meilleure de Toutes les Encres. This contemplative woman looks into the distance, quill poised, as she ponders how best to translate her inner-most thoughts to paper. Whatever her words, the fine ink she is using is sure to make the most of them.
"Grasset adheres to the classic mode of portraying women as serenely composed and dignified. Only the fluttering hair and scurrying night clouds suggest any wild untamed thoughts." (Gold, p. 5)

This is the larger of two known formats.
