'Lisez la Revue Blanche' [&] 'Frères' [&] 'La Gardienne' [&] 'Créanciers'

Vuillard, Edouard. Bang, Hermann, Henri de Regnier & August Strindberg

(Paris). 1894
A scarce ephemeral original lithograph announcement poster by Edouard Vuillard.

This single folded sheet, with two different lithograph compositions by Vuillard, is both an illustrated announcement for 'La Revue Blanche' and an advertisement for three plays - Hermann Bang's 'Frères', Henri de Regnier's 'La Gardienne' and August Strindberg's 'Créanciers' - performed at the 'Salle de la Comédie Parisienne', the '8e Soirée de l'Oeuvre'. The advertisement gives additional details of the leading performers.

It seems probable that the sheet was intended originally to be cut along the horizontal central fold to create two separate sheets; this example was never cut but was folded in four and then eight with resultant creases and splitting.

[Roger-Marx 23].
Single folded sheet. (484 x 324 mm). Original monochrome lithograph illustration and text by Edouard Vuillard recto only.
