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 and 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.
Giovanni Mataloni ( 1869 – 1944) was a prominent and influential Italian artist who advanced the art nouveau style with his own interpretation. This detailed and somewhat romantic image is for the Auer company to promote their gas lamps which were very innovative for the era.
This is an original vintage poster, not a reproduction. This poster is on heavyweight paper, and is in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.
