“D'Albert (a vignette)”. Aubrey Beardsley.


“D'Albert (a vignette)”.

[London?]: [Smithers?], Ca. 1898.

Photogravure printed on chine collé, initialed “AB” in the plate. This image appears as plate II in Six Drawings illustrating Théophile Gautier's Romance Mademoiselle de Maupin (London, Leonard Smithers, 1898). This is a copy from another printing, presumably made by Smithers; the limitation is not known. 1 vols. Image 3-3/4 x 2-3/4 inches; matted and framed to 8-3/4 x 7-3/4 inches overall. UNRECORDED PRINTING OF BEARDSLEY VIGNETTE. Fine condition. Lasner 121A. Item #27969

Evidently unrecorded. Lasner, in his Beardsley Checklist, mentions copies on plain paper, vellum, Japanese vellum, and white satin, but not chine collé, which this definitely is.
