Orange and Black

1935?  Two handbills, executed in mostly orange and black, depicting LM and "Fortune and the Young Child."  $6 each from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne-Ricouart, France, Sept., '20.

The artist here has the usual difficulty in depicting a lion.  This lion ends up to be more like a human being in his face as well as his body.  Elements of these two apparently monochrome handbills may have also had colors that have faded.
