Description: EUGÈNE GRASSET (1845-1917) SALON DES CENT. 1894.

With all of his Art Nouveau credentials, it is no wonder that the Salon des Cent dedicated their first one-man show (and second exhibition) to Grasset in 1894. The Salon des Cent was famous for having artists design their own exhibition posters and Grasset''s sensitive and impeccable work proved to be one of his best images, visually summing up his decorative principles. It is a harmonious, simple, symbolic representation of a young artist, a flower in one hand, pencil and a sketch pad in the other: a personification of the credo of Art Nouveau. The poster was enormously popular and successful, inspiring many young artists to gravitate towards the movement. Grasset p. 6, Weill p. 32, Maitres pl. 98, Word & Image p. 34, Reims 684, Arwas p. 6, Salon des Cent 8 (var), Art Nouveau p. 102, DFP-II 410.
