615T: Louis Icart MELODY HOUR Limited Ed. Giclee

Lot 615T View Catalog


This is a Louis Icart giclee titled "MELODY HOUR" (year of original -1934). This subject is plate signed on the lower right. Publisher: Paris Editions. Pencil numbered from an edition of 175. Paper measures 18" x 24". Image size of 13" x 20". Made on thick quality archival paper. Comes unframed. In mint condition. Comes with a certificate of authenticity. Louis Icart was born in Toulouse, France. He began drawing at an early age. He was particularly interested in fashion, and became famous for his sketches almost immediately. He worked for major design studios at a time when fashion was undergoing a radical change-from the fussiness of the late nineteenth century to the simple, clingy lines of the early twentieth century. Icart fought in World War I. He relied on his art to stem his anguish, sketching on every available surface. When he returned from the front he made prints from those drawings. The prints, most of which were aquatints and drypoints, showed great skill. Because they were much in demand, Icart frequently made two editions (one European, the other American) to satisfy his public. These prints are considered rare today, and when they are in mint condition they fetch high prices at auction.
