    This book is about Edmond Aman-Jean (1859–1936), a French symbolist painter and one on the main figures of the fin-de-siècle. It was published by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris in 1970. Nicolas Cochin works well with the work of Aman-Jean because as we can see on this detail on a portrait of the sculptor Jean Dampt, he was familiar of sophisticated letter forms.
