            Jun. 21, 2022

            Original Maitres de L'Affiche - PL 148 by Dudley Hardy 1895 - The J.P.

            Est: $300 - $700

            Maitres de l'Affiche (Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 color lithographic plates used to create an art publication during the Belle epoque 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 Cheret, 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. In this image, the British artist Dudley Hardy (1866 - 1922) advertises the Strand Theatre in one of the most innovative designs of the period. Hardy plays with the use of positive and negative space, much like Toulouse Lautrec. Only the gentleman's shoes, shirt, hands, and head are depicted - the rest is a bold, flat black. This push and pull of elements is a hint of the pared down graphics to follow in the works of poster artists such as Leonetto Cappiello. 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.

            Jun. 23, 2019

            Princess's Theatre / St. Paul's. ca. 1900.

            Est: $1,000 - $1,200

            ARTIST: DUDLEY HARDY (1867-1922) SIZE: 18 1/2 x 28 1/2 in./47 x 72.4 cm PRINTER: Waterlow & Sons, London DESCRIPTION: In 1842, the Princess's Theatre opened on London's Oxford Street, where they presented operas and plays; it is perhaps best known for its Shakespeare revivals and French dramas. By 1899, Albert Gilmer was the manager, and perhaps he dabbled in acting too, as suggested by Hardy's design. Though little is known of this particular production, the poster serves as a great example of Hardy's theatrical promotions and his detailed portraiture. (Art Nouveau; Theatre)

The play was created by Owen Hall, Harry Greenback, and Sidney Jones—the same trio behind the smash 1893 success, A Gaiety Girl. The lead role was written specifically for Marie Tempest: she plays an artist's model who marries a millionaire, becomes a widow, and then tries to win back the affections of her lovelorn artist.

            Est: $1,000 - $1,200

            ARTIST: DUDLEY HARDY (1867-1922) SIZE: 19 7/8 x 29 in./50.5 x 73.5 cm DESCRIPTION: The prolific English artist Dudley Hardy is best known for his work for publications and the theater, both as illustrator and posterist. His work for commercial firms is considerably rarer. And yet, his contribution to English poster art is considerable: "He really introduced the colour poster to England... His posters are strongly derivative of Chéret's; it would not be unfair to call him the poor man's Chéret. Like Chéret, he appreciated the advertising value of sex-appeal, and his recurring subjects are legs, tutus, frou-frous, and legs again. The range of expression and antic is between a frisky insouciance and a brassier glamour" (Hillier, p. 97). Another similarity to Chéret can be found in this poster for Hall's Coca Wine, a beverage similar in composition to the Chéret-advertised Vin Mariani (see PAI-XXXIII, 280). And note the interesting identical color choice of their models' apparel—both in yellow. (Art Nouveau; Alcohol)

            A Gaiety Girl. 1893.

            Est: $800 - $1,000

            ARTIST: DUDLEY HARDY (1867-1922) SIZE: 19 7/8 x 29 5/8 in./50.5 x 75.2 cm PRINTER: Waterlow & Sons, London DESCRIPTION: This simple British musical comedy ran for over 400 London performances before landing a Broadway debut, which was followed immediately by a complete world tour. The popularity of "A Gaiety Girl" resulted in over a dozen parodies and imitations being produced in the following years. The plot is nothing remarkable—it circles around a stolen comb and romantic obstacles. The actual draw came from the Gaiety Girls themselves: a troupe of vivacious female dancers all dolled up in the latest fashions who traipsed about the stage as often as possible.

            Maitres de Affiche - A Gaiety Girl by Dudley Hardy - 4

            Est: $150 - $450

            This first edition, folio lithograph after a poster is from Les Maitres de l'Affiche. The work was published by Imprimerie Chaix under the direction of Jules Cheret in Paris between 1896 and 1900. The prints were published as a monthly subscription, with 4 sent each month to subscribers. On 16 occasions "bonus" plates of original designs by noted artists were also included. Each lithograph features the blind embossed stamp of Maitres de l'Affiche designed by Cheret. Celebrated artists of the time contributed to the work including Steinlen, Mucha, Toulouse-Lautrec, Bonnard, Forain, Grasset, Meunier, Louis Rhead, Dudley Hardy, Beggarstaff, Edward Penfield et al. Jules Cheret was considered the father of poster art. "He dominated the series, with one in every four Maitres by him, the first in each monthly instalment, and 7 of the Special plates, a total of 67. With over 1000 poster designs to his credit, his large representation in the series is justified, although some critics have pointed out that, as the artistic director, he may have been biased towards selecting his own work." (Appelbaum p.iii) Cheret demonstrated a unique combination of artistic, technical, and entrepreneurial talent that spearheaded the poster industry. He opened his own print shop in 1866 in Paris and from 1881 on his shop operated as part of the Chaix firm which gave us Les Maitres de l'Affiche. Among the most sought after plates in the work are the "Job" and "Moulin Rouge" by Toulouse Lautrec. Rennert noted of the "Job" by Mucha that "more than any other work of Mucha's, this beauty established him as the master of convoluted hair and the creator of unforgettable popular images; the poster was used for years in many variants all over the world, sometimes with marginal text in various languages. A classic by any standard." (Rennert, PAI-XLIX 389) "Jane Abdy called it "a secular icon," and indeed it is a magnificent production, considering that it advertises cigarette paper. "The background, in a dull imperial purple is a perfect foil for the golden curls of the smoking girl, whose locks are spread over the poster like the delicate filigree work of an Indian bracelet"(Abdy, p.136) This art subscription was created during the Belle Epoque period in France. "There was nothing exclusive about the 'joie de vivre' that swept Paris, at a delirious pace, out of the 19th century into the 20th. As Victor Hugo had observed, the city lived by, and for, the whole human race. Haussman's great boulevards had opened up a spacious stage where Paris made a spectacle of herself by day and night. Outdoors and indoors the walls of buildings flowered with posters that took their themes from the passing show of 'La Vie Parisenne.' Advertising never knew happier days. The most ephemeral of the arts has left us with a vision of the 'good old days' that vanished forever in the gunsmoke of 1914. Those gay nineties and naughty noughts that will always be remembered as 'La Belle Epoque.'(The beautiful era)" (Horizon p. 97) "By the 1890s the streets of every great metropolis were enlivened by large colourful posters (see The Great Poster Movement). The poster had not only caught the fancy of the broad public, but its best examples were already being regarded as works of art (specifically, as fine prints) to be exhibited, reviewed in journals, collected and reprinted in a manageable form. In the last five years of the century, the Imprimerie Chaix was to play great part in codifying, hallowing and perpetuating the ebullient period of 'La Belle Epoque.' It was in those years that the firm published Les Maitres de l'Affiche (Masters of the Poster) reduced lithographic versions, in authentic colours, of the best posters of Europe and America, by more than 90 great artists, posters that bring the period to life." (Appelbaum p.iii)
