Mauzan FS

1920? X. Mauzan, "Le Renard et la Cigogne." $15 at Foster City, Feb., '97.


The dealer has identified this art as by Mauzan. There are two lines of La Fontaine's fable at the bottom of the lovely colored picture under the title. Curiously, the stork has a napkin around her neck with "Bébé" on it. What difference does the stork's age make? The stork and fox are pictured with vases before them; the stork eats while the fox licks.
