More About this Item


Description: Artist: PRIVAT LIVEMONT (1861-1936) Size: 32 1/2 x 43 5/8 in./82.5 x 110.8 cm J.L. Goffart, Bruxelles One of the most iconic posters of all time, Livemont's design for Absinthe Robette perfectly captures the spirit of Art Nouveau. Every element of the image is lavishly decorative yet delicately organic. Holding up her glass with the reverence of a holy relic, we do not see the hand that pours the water over the sugar, adding a mystical, otherworldly quality to the concoction. The background is made up of sensual plumes of mint on green, echoing the milky swirl within the cup. (alcohol, absinthe)
