Arthur Szyk lithograph

Object | Accession Number: 2002.113.3.5

The multi-colored lithograph represents Arthur Szyk's conception of the entire history of the Republic of France. Squares bearing the coat of arms of each region or province of France border the edges of the print. The French flag is centered at the top of the print and is surrounded by ribbons carrying the rallying words of the French Revolution,"Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity." Portraits of French notables including the Marquis de Lafayette, Molière, Joan of Arc, and Louis Pasteur are placed along the sides of the lithograph. The Coat of Arms for the City of Paris, depictions of a French sailor and a French soldier, and scenes of the Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dame fill the bottom.
