Georges Meunier (French 1869-1942)
From "Le Maitre de L'Affiche" PL.7 printed 1896
"Meunier, a beaux Arts-trained painter and decorative artist,
also designed 56 known posters that are much in the manner of Cheret,
not surpising since he worked at the master,s Chaix printing plant, started in 1894.
Cheret-like in conception if not in execution, this vertical design for a Swiss cigarmaker's exports to Australia presents
"the new woman"full of feminine charm, yet daring to smoke a cigar"
Fernand Toussaint (Belgian 1873-1955)
From "Le Maitre de L'Affiche" PL.80 printed 1897
"This magnificent poster, an artistic and lithographic tour de force, was Toussaint's first.
It publicizes the magazine of 'Le Sillon' one of many artists' groups that bred in rich cultural ferment of 1890s Brussels.
'Sillon' means furrow, to make one's own way in the world, which was the aim of this group."
