- Curator's comments
- This print is very similar in format to prints by Lalaisse in the series 'République française'.
However, the print catalogued here is not lettered with the series title, and although the print title and plate number correspond to Plate 39 of 'République française' listed in IFF 24, this print may be from another series
This print is also similar to another Lalaisse print of military uniform (1925,0409.38), also without a series title, and with similarities in the artist's signature and the lettering of production and publication details.
