Description: Artist: CLÉMENTINE-HÉLÈNE DUFAU (1869-1937) Size: 43 1/4 x 59 1/8 in./109.8 x 150.2 cm Imp. G. de Malherbe, Paris If there were few female artists during the Belle Époque, there were even fewer good and successful ones. Dufau, however, never created a bad poster -- in fact, she frequently won competitions and commissions, the end results of which have given us some of the best designs of the era. Coming from the Basque region of France, it seemed natural that an artist of such skill would be the ideal choice to represent the area's homegrown sport of jai-alai. There is a deft delicacy in the way she portrays the sportsmen, a perfect mastery of how to replicate the moment of sheer rapture as the women inhale in surprise. It is a beautiful balance between glamour and excitement. (sports, great art nouveau)
