[McManus, Blanche- Poster, Exquisite and Large ] "Legends of the Rhine"

[New York]: [A. S. Barnes & Co.], [1895].

Legends of the Rhine, New York: A.S. Barnes & Co., [1895]; 20 1/4 x 14 1/4 in. A very large, stunning and bold two-color woodcut poster printed in black and yellow, advertising the publication of Helene A. Guerber's book entitled, "Legends of the Rhine," by Blanche McManus (1869 ñ 1935). MacManus studied art in Chicago, London and Paris, and is acclaimed for her turn-of-the century creative Art Nouveau book covers, illustrations and posters. This enchanting poster is dominated by a large female figure in a flowing yellow gown playing the harp, and the text is set off by wonderful wavy black lines. A few closed tears, chipped corners, slightly toned, mounted on linen and matted. In all, very good condition.
