During the 1890s, there was a revived interest in color lithography in Paris. Originally considered a commercial art form, the medium was taken up by a growing number of printmakers as a means of formal experimentation. This print by Georges Bottini shows the shop of Edmond Sagot, a leading dealer of color lithographs during the late 19th and early 20th century. A crowd of fashionably dressed young women gather before the windows of Sagot's shop, suggesting the growing status of color lithography at this time.
