Description

A pictorial bookplate in black ink on sepia tinted paper for Enric Granados, a catalonian composer. "Ex-Libris" is used to show who the book owner is. A man is kneeling on one knee while playing the guitar and looking up at the woman next to him. The woman is wearing a dress with a hand on her hip and she is blowing a kiss towards the guitarist. By their feet in the middle is a left side profile of a floating head with a sheet underneath that is being held up by the other's feet.
