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.


"Some of the most heart-warming poster images ever created are those in which Steinlen gives us an intimate peek into his family life. You can virtually feel his adoring love for his wife Emilie and his daughter Colette, and he never fails to let us know that cats were regarded as full-fledged family members in his house. An accomplished and prolific caricaturist and illustrator, Steinlen had a concern for common people that gives his posters a deep humanity" (Gold, p.40).

Theophile Steinlen (1859 – 1923) was one of the most popular poster artists of his era and he was favored for his charming depictions of children and animals in his images. In this image Steinlen is promoting a French Company that sells both chocolate and teas .

  • 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.

  • 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.
