Description:

&quotThis design for Rajah coffee is a classic of Belgian Art Nouveau poster art. It was called Meunier’s ‘best work’ and ‘a masterpiece’ by L’Stampe et L’Affiche in 1898′ (p.227). Appropriately, a strong coffee tone dominates the colour scheme&quot(Rennert, PAI-XXXI, 536) &quotHenri Meunier was an artist of exceptional purity. He took flat colours in flat tints and his thick outlines from Japanese prints to construct strong and clear images: ‘With two or three pure colours, he fixes an impression that penetrates and imposes itself like the truth’ justly notes Demure de Beaumont.&quot(Weill, p.60)
