"A red-haired lady with fauna and flora, plus a sailboat in the
background is the subject of an original lithograph commissioned by
the publishers of L'Estampe Moderne, where the concept of the design
was explained as a garden of dreams where visions appear amidst mysterious
flowers, 'The fairy tale princess who dreamt
of the return of her price sees him coming off a white sailboat, with
his loyal greyhound greeting him with joy" (Rennert
"Is there such a thing a thing as feminine mystique? Georges
de Feure, for one, explores that side of the female psyche perhaps more thoroughly
than any other posterist. He views his women as enigmatic, often portraying them
with sly little smile of private amusement"
Not unlike the Maitre de L'Affiche series, L'Estampe Modern
was a portfolio printed between 1897-98, published by Imprimerie Champenois, Paris,
contained 24 monthly portfolios, with four original lithographs in each. Each
commissioned only for this series. As well as Mucha, some of the contributing
artists included Rhead, Meunier, Ibels, Steinlen, Willette and Grasset. This is
from the series with the blindstamp in the margin lower right corner.
