Ernest Louis Lessieux 1848-1925 French, b. La Rochele In 1878 Lessieux began painting landscapes and maritime scenes of Spain, especially in watercolor. Many of these images were reproduced in chromolithography on calendars and later on tricolor postcards. He had a long career as a watercolorist that included scenes from the French front in World War One. While he worked in a conventional realist style, he produced over 200 postcards issued in sets between 1900 and 1902 whose graphics were highly influenced by Art Nouveau.
