    13.5 x 16" framed. The last time I studied Lautrec prints you find some that were restruck many years later and they seem to be missing a color and/or some features. I guess what happened was that these were run off of several stones or plates back in the old days and each one had a separate color. SOmetimes one would break so the remakes are lacking a color or two. I suspect that's what happened here. Thought someone might have a better idea.

    I used to be very into Lautrec. Still love his work, but haven't looked at books in a very long while. I'm not quite sure what you're asking. His posters have been so widely reproduced. I have more than one Lautrec poster lurking rolled up in a corner, dating to early 70s.

    Im asking what version of this poster it is. Or is it impossible to tell. Dont some of them come with watermarks? Like Kleinmann did some of these a long time ago. I am sure there's a way to tell which version this is, although I am not sure there's enuf info from the pics.

    This lithograph contains a plate-monogram, title, the number XVI, and identifies the publisher, "Edw. Ancourt, Paris" within the matrix. It is taken from the Mourlot Freres book "The Posters of Toulouse-Lautrec," printed at Mourlot Press, Paris, France 1966.

    what is the back looking like ? is it possible that the XVI is hidden by the passe-aprtout ?
