Lithograph after original woodcut by William Nicholson from his famous Alphabet book. Nicholson (1872 – 1949) was a printmaker years before he became known as a portrait and landscape painter. He produced posters for commercial products and theatrical events. The style of these posters – simple shapes and flat colour – became the hallmarks of Nicholson’s graphic work. The Alphabet, published in 1898 firmly established him in the public’s mind and brought him immediate success.

Lithograph. Printed colour. Mounted size: 35 x 41 cm Fine condition.
