French Theater Poster - "Eldorado" by Louis Colas
This wonderful theater poster for the play "Eldorado"
starring Micheline was created by Louis Colas in the Art Nouveau
style of the late 19th century. We believe the chromolithograph
actually dates to the early decades of the 20th century. Marked
by the publisher on the right margin Belfond & Co., 10 Rue
Gaillon, Paris. The poster measures 14.25" wide x 21"
high. The official stamp is on the upper right corner and the
piece is signed in the plate on the left side by the artist. There
is a center fold, the corners are folded and discolored along
the fold line, there are nicks along the margins and there is
slight soiling. It is a marvelous example of poster art from the
tail end of the golden age of French posters. (Stock Number 003Micheline)
