Lucien Hector Jonas’ lithographs, “Requisition” and “Déportations”, c1945

Lucien Hector Jonas (1880–1947)

“Requisition” and “Déportations”, c1945, published as folio covers to “Les Souffrances de la France: Retraite, Restrictions, Ravages, Résistance, Représailles, Résurrection” (The Sufferings of France: Retirement, Restrictions, Ravages, Resistance, Retaliation, Resurrection), and printed by Destruit-Merlot-Mousset in 1945 by the French Association of Lithograph Artists in Paris.

(See a description of this publication and the lithographs offered by the bookseller, Proantic:

Lithographs in two colours (black and white) on heavy brown Canson paper/card with full margins as published.
Size: (each sheet) 32 x 24.5 cm
Each print signed on plate with the artist monogram at lower left: “LJ”

Condition: both impressions are in excellent condition (i.e. there are no tears, holes, abrasions, significant stains or foxing) but the sheet, “Requisition” has a vertical score mark—perhaps a publication fold line rather than a handling crease.

I am selling this pair of superb original lithographs of great historical and social interest for the total cost of AU$192 (currently US$136.57/EUR120.37/GBP104.68 at the time of this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world (but not, of course, any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries).

If you are interested in purchasing these graphically strong and meaningful lithographs, please contact me ( and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
