Posted on Fri Dec 01 2017

A most beautiful and rare but incomplete French booklet of Botticelli's paintings print, "Les Maîtres de la peinture", by R. Salvini, Editions Alpina Paris, from 1943. It is incomplete, as it used to hold 11 art prints, and there are 8 left. Perhaps the missing ones have been framed by the previous owner ? The booklet also features a 3 pages introdution to Botticelli's art and Renaissance in Italy, in French. The prints that are still there : La naissance de Vénus (on the cover) / Le retour de Judith du camp ennemi / Portrait de jeune homme / Pallas dompte le Centaure / La Madone de Magnificat / La Madone du livre / Allégorie pour les noces de Giovanna Tornabuoni / Le couronnement de la vierge (détail) / Ecce Homo. The booklet is printed on thick paper, almost carboard, the colors are stunningly well kept. It shows some aging, yellowing of the paper and tiny ripping mainly on the outside, please see pictures 8, 9 & 10. >> FREE SHIPPING from France, always with tracking. <<
