His themes often involved death as well as lovers and exquisite nudes, He became the director of the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1922 and two years before his death his major works were exhibited in the major museums of the United States. Bound in 3/4 blue cloth over blue marbled paper covered boards, black leather spine label gilt, marbled endpapers, original decorative wrappers bound into front and rear. A very nice copy with just a bit of scattered foxing to margins of etching.
