    8 1/2"x12" print on heavy paper. Top right says Hotel Sevilla Biltmore
    Havana (Cuba). French saying at bottom of print: says something like "drink iron water will get you colic? I don't know French. I found a postcard by same artist- Gleson? The signature is hard to make out- Gleson '25. I wonder if it's a print, brochure, stationary? The frame looks like 1920s. I just thought it was interesting, any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you!

      Is this the post card by Gleson that you found?

      I didn't find anything else. I think what you have is a print. Very interesting history.

      This a print of French Artist George Reson.

      Well what'd you know! Thank you very much mp.kunst for putting us straight. No wonder there wasn't much to find for Gleson! Reson has so many to look at. Thanks again.

      Thanks so much! Some list him as Georges Redon or George Reson. Looks like he did some artwork using backs of Menus. Maybe that’s why this artwork has Hotel Sevilla Biltmore written on the top? Saw some of his art sketched on a French restaurant menu, when I googled his name. Thanks again, I was getting nowhere with Gleson! He died in 1943.

      Some of his prints - originals not copies.
