Another fabulous lithograph by the French artist George Lucine Guyot - this time a resting bear. It is signed "Guyot" in the bottom left. We have had it framed with a German gold slip, a cream mount and a black lacquer frame. Although not numbered I believe that this is one of the lithographs that were produced by LeMatte et Boinot in 1937 in a limited edition of 200.
