Maîtres de l'Affiche (Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 color lithographic plates used to create an art publication during the Belle Époque in Paris, France. The collection, reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller 11 x 15-inch format, was put together by Jules Chéret, the father of poster art and distributed between 1895 – 1900. The varied selection of prints was sold in packages of four and delivered monthly to subscribers. Designed for a subscription audience, the publication showcased the most influential posters of the era in a collectible small format.

L’Eclatante is a vibrant poster which advertises kerosene lamps. The poster features two women elegantly dressed admiring the light from the lamp against a bright red sky. Manuel Robbe, the artist of the poster demonstrates his attention to line and detailing by way of the patterns on the women’s dresses.

Manuel Robbe (1872 - 1936) was a painter and printmaker in turn of the century Paris was influenced heavily by Japanese design, particularly in line and pattern work. In addition, Robbe had an experimental approach to printmaking and created over 200 aquatints and drypoints in his career. Robbe's technique was developed over several phases, which included printing with a mixture of sugar, India ink and gum Arabic on his zinc plate.

  • 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.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
