This original lithograph was created in 1971 by Andre Brasilier. He creates works that are a blend of expressionism and ethereal beauty. His works often features themes and motifs like horses, nature, music, and the female figure. His wife, Chantal, has been his muse for several decades and his story is one of love for the world that surrounds us. Andre Brasilier, very much like Henri Matisse, is an artist of beauty and hope that elevates us and heals our soul. This proof is a "Bon à Tirer", which means that it is the last proof pulled from the press by the artist before the full edition is printed. It is the printer's insurance policy that the artist has accepted the final trials.
Because it is a working proof, it is slightly more aged and still has the registration marks in the margins. The artist has annotated the lower left requiring the amount of prints he wants printed. In this case, 130... as he knows there might be a few mistakes during the printing. Probably 10 to 15 proofs will not be good enough. The overrun of 10 to 20 will become artist proofs or collaborator's proofs.
Ed. 100 in yellow and 50 in orange, a further 10 artist proofs and 6 collaborator / printer's proofs. Ref. Le Pichon #50.
