Fandeacute;licien Champsaur (1858 - 1934) was an extremely popular French novelist and journalist. This wonderful poster is aimed at promoting his work Entrandeacute;e de Clownesse(1900), a sequel to his wildly popular Entrandeacute;e de Clown from 1886. An original lithograph, printed in color on wove paper, this work is signed in the lower right. It is a fine impression, transcribed from Lucasandrsquo; 1897 poster of the same title by artisans at Atelier Chandeacute;ret. It was issued as plate 210 (of 256) in the series Les Maandicirc;tres de landrsquo;Affiche, bearing the blindstamp of the monogram (Lugt 1777c) in the sheet at the lower right. Published by Jules Chandeacute;ret printed at Imprimerie Chaix (Atelier Chandeacute;ret), Paris. There may be minor discoloration and or micro nicks or tears around the sheet edge, all of which are in the margin, which will be well covered with matting once framed. As the image is pristine condition, the work is considered to be in excellent condition, with brilliant, fresh colors printed on a sheet with full margins.
