From the album L'Estampe originale (The Original Print)
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, French, 1864 - 1901. Printed by Edward Ancourt, French, active 19th century. Published by André Marty, Paris.
This lithograph was designed as the wraparound cover for a new collector's album of limited-edition prints by Lautrec and other young artists, such as Pierre Bonnard and Édouard Vuillard. Here the entertainer Jane Avril is depicted in a lithographic work shop, examining a print fresh off the handpress.
