Eugène Grasset (French, born Switzerland. 1841-1917)

Three illustrations for 'Les Mois' ...

From a "series of twelve color plates, one for each month, designed for the calendar of La Belle Jardinière, a Parisian department store ... The plates were engraved on wood and printed on vellum in "Gillotage," an early form of photolithography invented by Grasset’s friend Firmin Gillot."
