This poster is from the series, Les Maitres de l’Affiche (The Masters of the Poster ) took five years to produce from 1895 to1900.

It is one of the most prestigious and influential art publications in history. This series features the most outstanding posters of the late 19th century when the medium  was only used for commercial advertising.  During the 19th century the poster celebrated its golden era under the hands of famous artist such as, Cheret, Toulouse Lautrec, Mucha and Steinlen. They elevated the poster from a commercial medium to innovative art form. By  the 1890s, the streets of every great metropolis were enlivened  by large, colourful posters. The poster had not only caught the eye of the public, but it’s best examples were already being regarded as works of art, to be exhibited, reviewed in journals and collected.

In  1895, the Imprimerie Chaix firm published reduced chromolithographic versions of over 200 the best posters of the period by more than 90 great artists. This Chaix publication Les Maitres de l’Affiche, was issued as separate numbered lithographs, every month for 60 months from 1895 to 1900.

Of the 97 artists represented all were prominent artists of the day.

The lithograph was issued with an embossed seal at the lower right further signifying its authenticity.

Artist:

Georges De Feure (1868-1943)

Georges de Feure (real name Georges Joseph van Sluijters) was a French painter, theatrical designer, and industrial art designer. De Feure was born in Paris. His father was a successful Dutch architect. In 1886, de Feure was one of the eleven students admitted at the Rijkscademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam, which he did however leave very quickly for Paris since he felt that formal academic training had nothing to offer him. Being of very independent nature, de Feure never again took up formal artistic studies, and forged his own independent path. He was however influenced by Jules Cheret in his posters for the cafe concert but most likely was never his pupil and became the key designer of Siegfried Bing for L’Art Nouveau. He exhibited in the Exposition Universelle de Paris exhibition in 1900. He designed furniture, worked for newspapers, created theater designs for Le Chat Noir cabaret and posters.
