Today the poster arrived with FedEx. Fantastic quality! I'm very pleased and will come by to your gallery when I'm in NY in January.
Mr. Ross has the one of the finest collections of international vintage posters and prints. He was most helpful working with me to select a genre of work I collect. No trip to Manhattan is complete without stopping into Mr. Ross's Gallery on Madison Avenue to see his latest offerings.

The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters provenance.
I recieved the poster this evening via UPS. It looks fantastic! I'm very pleased with it.
If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.
Mickey - We received the posters today and they are absolutely fantastic. Thanks again.
Really great service from start to finish. Shipping to the UK was not a problem and Mickey and his team gave me all the information I needed. Really happy with the poster too. A great addition to my living room wall. Thanks Again.
It was great meeting with you as well. I had a lot of choices of poster stores to visit while in New York, some less expensive, but I chose to only visit The Ross Art Group due to the level of service that I received initially and the quality of the posters. I really appreciate your communication and follow-up! I will recommend The Ross Art Group to anyone that will be looking for posters....
BRUNNHILD - BUSSIERE

This image was symbolic of Richard Wagner’s heroine in the opera Die Walkire. It was one of the images produced for the series called L’Estampe Moderne.
The "L'Estampe Moderne was a collector's edition of 100 color lithographs from the most acclaimed French art nouveau artists of the period, appearing in monthly issues of four prints each between May 1897 and April 1899. Each contains the "blindstamp" imprint of the series: a head of a young woman in the lower right corner. The publication was distributed by Imprimerie Champenois, Paris. It contained twenty-four monthly portfolios plus four bonus plates each with commentaries or poems about the image. Almost all of these lithographs were commissioned especially for this series.
Gaston Bussiéré was a french painter, illustrator of books, and printmaker. He was taught by his father, a decorative painter. He attended the École des Beaux-Arts in Lyon and then went to Paris. Bussiéré was greatly influenced by the works of his contemporaries, especially Gustave Moreau. His paintings followed the Symbolist style. He used French legends and Nordic myths in many of his paintings, which lent themselves to the illustrations he created for many books of his day. Gaston exhibited in the Symbolist Salon de la Rose and Croix for two years. It was during this time, the art cards of his work, we see today, were made. His most known painting is from Oscar Wilde's Salome. Bussièrè's lifelong specialty was the study of the female nude. He upheld rigorous draughtsmanship, while still capturing the sensuality of his subjects. At the same time, Gaston used the surrounding countryside, streams and forests, to giving his romantic nymphs the perfect settings.
