Two of 12 original lithographs printed in colours 1925. Each signed in pencil. From the edition of 300. Issued by Gustave Pellet paris 1925 signed, dated, dedicated by Vertes in pencil. Excellent strong fresh impressions with unfaded colours. On pale cream ware paper. If Lautrec and Steinlen were the chronicles of society night-life in the 1890's so then was Vertes the archetypal artiste-rapporteur of the era of the 1920's. At this period, his drawing had a wit and style which ideally reflects that era, both its panache and its excesses. These colour lithographs, commissioned by Pellet, who had issued Lautrec's Elle's scenes of lithograps in the 1890's includes what are probably Vertes finest prints. It is extremely rare to have a complete set of Vertes Les Dancing prints.
