About this Item

Hand-coloured lithograph on japon, full margins. A scarce lithograph, depicting a Jewish ritual bath (Mikvah) in a North African country. The Mikvah is a Sephardic tradition in which the bride, her female friends and relatives take a pre-nuptial bath together. Lunois uses this imagined scene to show us a handsome nude just before she is wrapped in a towel. Using his technique of "wash lithography", Lunois gives the moment a rich, impressionistic feel. Alexandre Lunois showed a marked aptitude for lithography at an early age and at the age of 24 was given a monetary prize by the Salon, which he used to travel through Spain, Morocco, Italy and Turkey. The pictorial result of these travels is a rich trove of intriguing scenes and interesting experiments in color. Lunois taught his lithographic technique to Bonnard and Vuillard in the 1890's.
