Alexandre Lunois (1863-1916), French

Mssr. Lunois was born in Paris, France on 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 to the NetherlandsSpain, Morocco, Italy and 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 Le Pecq, France on September 2, 1916.
