Описание: This newly expanded book on Louis Icart - one of Frances most well known art deco artists - now includes a section on his oil paintings, as well as over 512 different etchings, painstakingly acquired and photographed. Particular attention has been given to the early years (1911-1924), when Icart was a relatively unknown artist and his edition sizes were small. With few exceptions, the book contains large, full color illustrations that give the reader a true representation of the full-size etchings. The authors clarify some of the existing confusion surrounding Icarts work, explaining the variations in his signature, the use of the "Windmill" seal and other seals, and the myriad copyright notations found on his artwork. The illustrations have been carefully measured and dated. This is a great addition to the Icart legacy.
