The Very Best of Jules Cheret (French 1836-1932)
The Father of the poster



Bal du Moulin Rouge
From "Le Maitre de L'Affiche" PL.53 printed 1897
$750.00

This poster, by the master Cheret, captures perhaps more than any other,
the entire period and it's focal point the world famous "Moulin Rouge" (Greg)
.

"The achievement of Cheret was to create a world of explosive happiness,
and to paste it on the walls of Paris. As a painter he will be remembered for what Huysmans
calls his 'spirit of nervous gaiety', as a lithographer for his superb technique,
and as a poster artist for being the ancestor of all modern advertising." (Abdy p.36)


Jules Cheret's most famous "Four Arts"
"…there is nothing to say about these designs other than they are perfect.
These four decorative panels are triumphs of colour and printing."

Some of the most beautiful posters ever created.



Salon des Cent / XXme Exposition
From "Le Maitre de L'Affiche" PL.94 printed 1897
Sold To Request

"This Mucha from Maitre de L'Affiche, perhaps more than any other demonstrates the outstanding printing skills of the time.
The smaller format, on high quality paper, lent it self to the use of cutting edge technology not seen in the full size posters
of the day. The golds used in the printing of the Salon des Cent are unequal to anything printed before or since.
This is truly a lithographer's lasting masterpiece from the printer Imprimerie Chaix" Greg
