Although unsigned, this pair of superb paintings are so close to the work of Albert Guillaume that they richly deserve an attribution to the artist. There is an element of caricature and humour in the way they are painted which echos the coveted work of master poster artists of the period such as Henri Toulouse Lautrec and Jules Cheret. Here is an opportunity to own authentic period pieces without having to pay six or seven figure sums.
