Le Blond and Licencees Prints

It is probably the Le Blond ovals that are the favourite collecting area for those interested in his work. However, his catalogue included so much more originality as well as those images we know as the Le Blond Baxters. Here is a small selection of items available and they are unframed unless stated differently. If you are searching for a particular image, please feel free to contact me. There are a few Licencee prints included in this section too, and this is an area where a comprehensive collection can be made at reasonable cost.
