This exceptional work is a unique print annotated and hand colored by Bernard Buffet in 1988. Bernard Buffet's interventions on this lithographic print were intended for the printer before launching the printing of the lithograph "Bouquet de quatre roses". A limited edition of 125 copies (plus 25 artist's proofs) was finally printed by the Imprimerie Mourlot in Paris.
This unique proof is remarkable because it allows us to appreciate the process of creating a lithograph and in particular the attention paid to the colors. Bernard Buffet used gouache and pencil to annotate and make his observations on the work.
The dimensions indicated (76 x 51 cm) are those of the sheet only, they do not take into account the frame.
