Women's Edition Buffalo Courier by Alice Russell Glenny, Art Nouveau lithograph, 1897


Alice Russell Glenny’s Women's Edition Buffalo Courier, 1897 lithograph on Japon paper produced with a plate of metallic gold ink. Paper measures 8 5/16 x 12 5/16 inches. Exceptional condition commensurate with age. Image is pristine and will display beautifully.

While this poster was printed in multiple sizes and formats, this edition of 25 strikes on Japon paper from 1897 is the most desirable and extremely scarce edition. Japon paper allows inks to rest upon its surface rather than being absorbed by a more permeable paper stock. The rare, small format poster lithographs created at this time were printed using rich, dense, lead inks.

This artwork is presented professionally framed using all archival materials and arrives accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
