Description:

&quotGrasset did much to introduce the concept and practice of Art Nouveau in France. In fact, Grasset brought Art Nouveau to the poster: it was to become a worldwide vehicle of the art of advertising. In France, Grasset was the pioneer of an attempt, like that of William Morris in England, to reconcile art and industry&#8230Interested as he was in all the applied arts he came naturally to the poster. It was the ‘F�tes de Paris’ with a herald on the back of a horse with an exaggerated mane. The composition and the pure colours make the influence of the Japanese Ukiyo-E school of engraving, as do the thick outlines, similar to lead of stained glass&#8230daring for the period.
