Paul Colin for Lesbroussart & Fils

1930?  Two black-and-white handbills by Paul Colin presenting FG and “The Old Man and the Three Young Men.”  Stamped by Lesbroussart & Fils in Beauvais.  7¾” x 11”.  No publisher acknowledged.  Planche #2008 (“Old Man”) and #2016 (FG).  $6 each from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne-Ricouart, France, Sept., ’20.

Someone must have produced a lot of handbills to make these in the 2000’s!  These images replicate large Colin posters in the collection and also a book of Colin posters, “La Fontaine en Images.”  I love Colin’s work!  Does something of the fox’s face get lost in FG? Does some other artist create these black-and-white designs on the basis of Colin's work, or might he do that himself?
