Art Nouveau Watercolors of Decor and Other Subjects
1909. Quarter Calf. Very Good. Folio, 48 by 33 cm. 39 watercolors and chalk drawings mostly of furniture and decor items but also a smattering of decorative book bindings, architectural details, flowers, animals, landscapes, etc. Particularly nice are the studies of furniture, screens and stained glass windows. Ragot was a student at the Lycee de Laval at the time. The work is generally quite precise, and he satisfyingly captured the prevailing Art Nouveau aesthetic that was soon to recede. All the leaves are now loose from their binding. Many of them are stamped in the corner with the school name and information about when the work was done, how long it took to do, and for what class it was assigned. The folio is quarter calf and heavily worn. The artworks are mostly on heavy card paper and are generally clean.
