Description: Artist: EUGENE GRASSET (1841-1917) Size: 32 3/4 x 48 in./83.2 x 122 cm G.D. Malherbe, Paris Visually translating the inner turmoil of writer's block, Grasset swirls inky clouds across the night sky, wildly whipping through the lady's fiery hair. Leaning on a harp, however -- a classic symbol of thoughtfulness and contemplation -- we know that soon her pages will be filled with profound thoughts, all thanks to L. Marquet ink. This is the larger format.
