  • 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 were sold in packages of four and delivered monthly to subscribers. Designed  for a subscription audience it showcased the most influential posters of the era in a collectible small format.
     
    In this image created by Eugene Grasset (1845 – 1917) we view the exotic looking oriental rug seller dealing with one of his clients. The text promotes the store A La Place Clichy in Paris as The Premiere Home for Oriental Imports . The quality and exacting detail of the artwork is very much in the style of Grasset. He was born in Switzerland but was most noted for his creations done in France during the majority of his career. He worked in the field of advertising as well as fine art.
