Original Maitre de l''affiche - Plate 137
Price: $425.00
By the 1890s the streets of every great metropolis were enlivened by large colourful posters (see The Great Poster Movement). The poster had not only caught the fancy of the broad public, but its best examples were already being regarded as works of art (specifically, as fine prints) to be exhibited, reviewed in journals, collected and reprinted in a manageable form. In the last five years of the century, the Imprimerie Chaix was to play great part in codifying, hallowing and perpetuating the ebullient period of ''La Belle Epoque.'' It was in those years that the firm published ''Les Maitres de l''Affiche'' (Masters of the Poster) reduced lithographic versions, in authentic colours, of the best posters of Europe and America, by more than 90 great artists, posters that bring the period to life.'' (Appelbaum p.iii) This plate, # 137, by THE poster artist (also called the father of modern lithography) Jules Cheret was for the benefit of Emergency Night Shelters; announcing an exhibition of French Ar from the period of Louis XIV and Louis XV at the Ecole des Beaux Arts.
