Didot Peinture Decorative
FRENCH DESIGN PRINT
This 136 year old chromo print was rescued from "LA PEINTURE DECORATIVE en FRANCE du XI eme au XVI eme SIECLE" ("Decorative Painting in France from the 11th to the 16th Centuries") by P. Gelis-Didot & H. Laffillee. It was published by Firmin Didot & Cie of Paris in 1875 and litho'd by Gaulard. This book served as a scholarly record of the pictures and imagery in churches and decoration in mansions and castles of France.
