Fletcher/Copenhaver Fine Art
Alexandre Lunois (1863-1916)

Lunois perfected his technique as a lithographer by doing reproductions of works by Butin, Lhermitte, Béraud, Daumier, and others. In 1885 he began to produce lithographs after his own designs. He was also a figure and landscape painter, a watercolorist, an etcher, illustrator and poster maker. In 1888, he won a traveling fellowship which allowed him to visit Belgium, Holland, Spain (where he spent much time in Seville and Granada). He also went to Morocco, Italy, Sweden and Norway. Later he was also to visit Turkey. He earned extra money on his travels by selling his drawings of the places he visited, and when he finally returned to Paris he had a very successful one-man-exhibition of the works he had painted abroad. He exhibited with the Salon des Artistes Français, winning medals in 1882, 1883, 1887, 1888, and 1889. In 1896 he was elected to the Légion d'honneur. In 1900 he exhibited at and was on the jury of the Exposition Universelle. He was a member of the Société des Orientalistes.
