Description

Grasset, greatly influenced by the art of Japan, Persia, and Egypt, created designs for stained-glass windows, furniture, tapestries, and fabrics. This female allegory of Sculpture was meant for an 1898 exhibition poster. Only the black areas and lines were printed. Rather than using a separate stone to print each color, watercolor was applied with the aid of a stencil.
