Lavish large-format limited edition of ten drawings and gouaches by Lurçat.
"[Lurçat] attached great importance to the nature of his materials, choosing watercolor to express the dreamlike (1917 to 1920), oil for his 'major' paintings (1925 to 1931), and gouache for the work of his twilight painting years." (Denizeau)
Eight of Lurçat's vivid gouaches and two drawings, including several landscapes, figural studies and one superb owl (No. 8: La chouette verte), with an additional untitled lithographed design in brilliant blue preceding the table of contents.
