Literature

Print depicting a circular motif of an angel carrying a young man in the air. The angel as long hair, wings, a robe and seems to be female. She is holding the male figure who looks as if he has fainted. This work looks neo-classical as well as heavily influenced by art nouveau. Surrounding the figures is a line of circular text. Above the figures there is text that reads, "Qui Meurt Quant la Patrie est Vivante." The image is printed in a dark red and black ink.
