F. Hugo d'Alesi, ‘Le Lac d’Annecy / Paris-Lyon-Méditerranée’, 1900, Rennert’s Gallery

D’Alesi was a very particular and methodical artist, “notorious for having ruined several printers, not hesitating to ask for one or two extra color printings in order to obtain exactly the shading he wanted” (Livre de l’Affiche, p. 14). The results, however, are fantastically beautiful, overflowing with detail and atmosphere.
