Product Overview

The L'Absinthe Rend Fou lithograph is an exact recreation of the 1915 pre-ban French poster. In English, L'Absinthe Rend Fou translates to mean: "Absinthe makes you crazy". The was a major campaign in France, in 1914, advocating for a total ban of sale and manufacturing of absinthe. By March 1915 the beverage was declared a toxic product and it was completed prohibited by law.

The lithograph is pulled on an 1800s French Marinoni Voirin press on Rives BFK cotton paper.

This is not reprint or reproduction. It is a remastered, recreated, original work of art.

This piece was produced in 1999 at S2 Editions Atelier, New York City under the guidance of the Ré Society, Ltd, and the S2 Art company.

This lithograph bears the trademark of the Ré Society, plus the blind stamped emblem of the S2 Editions Atelier. The signature of the chromist is also printed unobtrusively on this lithograph in order to distinguish it from the original Golden Age poster.

The lithograph is sequentially numbered in pencil in the lower left border, by a curator at S2 Editions.

Comes with a certificate of authenticity by S2 Art Group, Ltd. Item is packaged and shipped in a museum quality tube.

Dimensions: 14" x 43"
