Yves, is it really FRESSON ??
I saw the Misonne exhibition in Charleroi with at least 40 prints and
nearly all were
OILPRINTS.
Also the books I have with the work of Misonne (including ' la couleur
du temps') contains mainly OILPRINTS and no Fresson.
So, if you are interested in this 'Misonne'-look see my article on
oilprinting on
