Alexandre Lunois (1863-1916), French
Mssr. Lunois was born in
February 2, 1863. A 'belle époque' painter and print-maker,
Lunois became know as a virtuoso reproductive lithographer, but he soon began creating original compositions some of which
won him medals at the Salons as early as 1882. In 1887, he was awarded a monetary prize, and with these funds he traveled
Turkey. He was remarkably well traveled and he illustrated his voyages in his paintings and lithographs.
Many of his lithographs have as their subject’s scenes drawn from his visits to these countries. All of his prints show
bold handlings of color and an atmospheric approach to light. Lunois' print production consisted almost exclusively of
color lithographs, a medium which he was instrumental in reviving. His favorite subjects were Spanish. He died in
September 2, 1916.
