Henri Farre Art

This is a special collecting interest of mine and the items below are duplicates. My collection includes 10 original Farre oil paintings of WWI aviation battle scenes, numerous lithographs and prints, exhibition catalogs and related ephemera. Upon request, I would be happy to send along some images of my holdings.

  • Rare Farre Litho of Guynemer - 1917

    SKU: 21-F-1

     Original large 11 x 17" sepia toned lithograph by famous WWI French Artist Henri' Farre.  Carries the French Army Museum stamp in the lower right.  Signed by Farre in pencil to the left of the stamp with crude translation "Hope of the Artist - H. Farre".  Framed, matted and under plexiglas.  Very good (light spot in photo is glare, not a fault).  These seldom come on the market and if they do it's at prices over $1000.
