          HENRI-GABRIEL IBELS (1867-1936) SALON DES CENT / SALON DE LA PLUME. 1894. 23¼x16 inches, 59x40½ cm. Eugène Verneau, Paris. Condition B+: losses in top corners and lower right margin; minor repaired tears at edges; minor losses along horizontal fold; unobtrusive vertical and horizontal folds. Framed. La Plume had recognized and lauded Ibels' talent in their January 15, 1893 issue. A year later they bestowed further honor on him by commissioning him to design the poster for the first Salon des Cent. For his poster he employed a palette of five colors, softly gradated between green and brown. The image is composed of some of his favorite characters: a ballet dancer, a harlequin and a Pierrot, who is painting a picture of the ballerina. As with all of Ibels' work, it is an accomplished drawing of intense poetical elegance. "Remarkable in more than one way, this poster presents a resolutely modern composition and a framing which reveal the position of the ballerina in a depthless, indefinite space, as well as the perfect integration of the text to the image" (Salon des Cent p. 55).

          ARTIST: HENRI-GABRIEL IBELS (1867-1936) SIZE: 31 1/8 x 23 1/2 in./79 x 59.7 cm PRINTER: Imp. Eugène Verneau, Paris DESCRIPTION: One of the best and most important posters having to do with the art of the poster, this design by Ibels is always a highlight in any sale. Pierrefort was one of the many dealers involved in the sale of printed multiples of the 1890s, along with Sagot, Arnould, and Kleinmann. He commissioned a variety of posters to promote his shop, calling upon the talents of Lobel, de Feure, and Thiriet. None are quite so charming, however, as this one by Ibels, which showcases the delights of a pantomime complete with a harlequin, a singer, and Pierrot. (Art Nouveau; Exhibitions)

          Aug. 03, 2023

          HENRI-GABRIEL IBELS (1867-1936). MÉVISTO. 1892. 68½x49 inches; 174x124½ cm. Delanchy & Cie., Paris.

          Est: $800 - $1,200

          HENRI-GABRIEL IBELS (1867-1936) MÉVISTO. 1892. 68 1/2x49 inches; 174x124 1/2 cm. Delanchy & Cie., Paris. Condition B+: minor creases and repaired tears at edges; minor creases and abrasions in image; small water stain at bottom right margin; slight foxing at bottom left corner. Two-sheets. Ibels studied at the Academie Julian with Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard and became one of the original members of the Nabis, participating in all of their exhibitions. In 1894, he designed the first poster for the Salon des Cent, a year before he created this image, the largest he was to ever design. Jules Mévisto was a mime and a comedian who had a short-lived career performing fairly unpopular sketches in café concerts. Ibels had already portrayed the actor as a Pierrot in Entrée en Scene, a series of small format lithographs, before he set about creating this large poster for the actor's appearance at the Concert de La Scala. Against the bleak, nouvelle-urban setting of a busy factory with active chimneys, Ibels depicts the images of the actor, in profile, a sitting peasant, a soldier and a farmer toiling in the field. All of these characters were to be the subjects of the socially-critical act that Mévisto would deliver. Stylistically, Ibels' layout and outlining are very similar to Lautrec's, but his colors are less aggressive and his subdued melancholy lends his images a different mood. Thanks to both Ibels and Lautrec, as Charles Saunier noted in La Plume, the poster, which had only been considered as attractive wall decoration, was being elevated to the higher status of a satirical and sociological vision.

Condition B: replaced losses in margins; repaired tears and creases in margins and image; creases along vertical and horizontal folds. Matted & framed. Ibels was one of the most prominent young artists in Paris in the 1890s. He studied at the Academie Julian with Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard and became one of the founding members of the Nabis, participating in all of their exhibitions. In 1891, his works were exhibited side-by-side with Toulouse-Lautrec's at the Salon des Independants, and the two became close friends. Like Toulouse-Lautrec, he loved the café-concerts and designed most of his posters for, or featuring, performers. In 1893, he collaborated with Toulouse-Lautrec on an album of lithographs entitled Le Café-Concert. Rather than become a painter, Ibels dedicated his art to the printed page, working for magazines, designing sheet music covers and theatrical programs. Within the Nabis, he was known as "The Nabis Journalist," because of his work for many of Paris' progressive journals and the founding of the short-lived periodical L'Escarmouche.

          H.G. Ibels Belle ?poque Original Litho 1893 Signed From Le Caf? Concert is an original signed Litho, realized in 1893 by Henri-Gabriel Ibels. Black and white lithograph on paper. The print is from the portfolio Le Caf? Concert, a suite of lithographs on Japan paper by Toulouse-Lautrec and Henri-Gabriel Ibels, printed by Edward Ancourt & Cie and published in 1893 by l'Estampe Originale.

Montorgueil?s essay argued that caf?-concert are place for people from all walks of life to relax and communicate. This print represents a portrait of Polin French cabaret singer (''comique troupier'') and actor. Having become famous, he sang at the Caf? des Ambassadeurs and then, for twenty years, at La Scala, both in Paris. His most successful songs were recorded initially on the cylinders of the time, many of which were reissued more recently on CDs. Sign of the artist printed on lower right.

          Est: $2,500 - $3,000

          ARTIST: HENRI-GABRIEL IBELS (1867-1936) SIZE: 15 5/8 x 23 in./39.6 x 58.5 cm PRINTER: Imp. Eugène Verneau, Paris DESCRIPTION: This lovely design for the very first exhibition of the Salon des Cent gracefully references three famous characters from Commedia dell’Arte. Pining with love, the ever-sad clown Pierrot paints the beautiful ballerina Columbine as Harlequin; the man with whom she will eventually run off peers over his shoulder. It is a moment filled with romantic promise even though we know that historically this does not end well for Pierrot. Cleverly, Ibels has placed his signature on Pierrot’s canvas, possibly alluding to the sympathy he has for the character. Many comparisons have been made between the work of Ibels and Toulouse-Laturec: they both are captivated by slice-of-life moments, especially those surrounding performers and other fringe members of society who are unafraid to showcase the ugly or grotesque.

Condition A-: margins trimmed to image; minor creases in image; small pin holes in corners and at edges. Matted and framed. La Plume had recognized and lauded Ibels' talent in their January 15, 1893 issue. A year later they bestowed a further honor on him by commissioning him to design the poster for the first Salon des Cent. For his poster he employed a palette of five colors, softly gradated between green and brown. The image is composed of many of his favorite characters: a ballet dancer, a harlequin and a Pierrot who is actually painting a picture of the ballerina. As with all of Ibels' work, it is a high-standard drawing of intense poetical elegance. "Remarkable in more than one way, this poster presents a resolutely modern composition and a framing which reveal the position of the ballerina in a depthless, indefinite space, as well as the perfect integration of the text to the image" (Salon des Cent p. 55).

Condition B: replaced losses in margins; repaired tears and creases in margins and image; creases along vertical and horizontal folds. Matted & framed. Ibels was one of the most prominent young artists in Paris in the 1890s. He studied at the Academie Julian with Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard and became one of the founding members of the Nabis, participating in all of their exhibitions. In 1891, his works were exhibited side-by-side with Toulouse-Lautrec's at the Salon des Independants, and the two became close friends. Like Toulouse-Lautrec, he loved the café-concerts and designed most of his posters for, or featuring performers. In 1893, he collaborated with Toulouse-Lautrec on an album of lithographs entitled Le Café-Concert. Rather than become a painter, Ibels dedicated his art to the printed page, working for magazines, designing sheet music covers and theatrical programs. Within the Nabis, he was known as "The Nabis Journalist," because of his work for many of Paris' progressive journals and the founding of the short-lived periodical L'Escarmouche.

Matted and framed. The Critic's Getting Up was a satirical play performed at the Theatre d'Application. The image is of a young woman whispering into the ear of a statue. For the Parisian avant-garde in Paris at the time, the statue's face would have been immediately recognizable: it is a caricature of the critic Francisque Sarcey, whom everybody loved to tease and who was an easy target for criticism himself. With features that were prone to caricature, and as an unofficial whipping boy of the avant-garde, Sarcey was also depicted in several posters by Jules-Alexandre Grün. Most likely, Sarcey was also a target in this play. DFP-I 477 (var), Reims 751, Hillier p. 78.

Condition B: replaced losses, repaired tears, creases and abrasions in margins and along vertical and horizontal folds. Two-sheets. Framed. Ibels studied at the Academie Julian with Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard and became one of the original members of the Nabis, participating in all of their exhibitions. In 1891, his works were exhibited side-by-side with Toulouse-Lautrec's at the Salon des Independants, and in 1893 he collaborated with Lautrec again to illustrate Le Café Concert for Marty, the French publisher. Perhaps Ibels is overlooked as an artistic equal to Lautrec and Bonnard because of his decision not to focus on painting, but rather to dedicate his artistic efforts to the printed page, working for magazines, designing sheet music covers and theatrical programs. Within the Nabis, he was known as "The Nabis Journalist," because of his work for many of Paris' progressive journals and the founding of the short-lived periodical L'Escarmouche. In 1894, he designed the first poster for the Salon des Cent, a year before he created this image, the largest he was to ever design. Jules Mévisto was a mime and a comedian who had a short-lived career performing fairly unpopular sketches in café concerts. Ibels had already portrayed the actor as a Pierrot in Entrée en Scene, a series of small format lithographs, before he set about creating this large poster for the actor's appearance at the Concert de La Scala. Against the bleak, nouvelle-urban setting of a busy factory with active chimneys, Ibels depicts the images of the actor, in profile, a sitting peasant, a soldier and a farmer toiling in the field. All of these characters were to be the subject of the socially-critical act that Mévisto would deliver. Stylistically, Ibels' layout and outlining are very similar to Lautrec's, but his colors are less aggressive and his subdued melancholy lends his images a different feel overall. Thanks to both Ibels and Lautrec, as Charles Saunier noted in La Plume, the poster, which had only been considered as attractive wall decoration, was being elevated to the higher status of a satirical and sociological vision.

Eugène Verneau, Paris DESCRIPTION: This design by Ibels is arguably one of the best and most important posters having to do with the art of the poster. Pierrefort was one of the many dealers involved in the sale of printed multiples in the 1890s, along with Sagot, Arnould, and Kleinmann. He commissioned a variety of posters to promote his shop, calling upon the talents of Lobel, de Feure (see No. 314), and Thiriet. None are quite so charming, however, as this one by Ibels, showcasing the delights of a pantomime complete with harlequin, singer, and pierrot. This is the small format of the image.

Eugène Verneau, Paris DESCRIPTION: As one of the most notable posterists of the Belle Époque, Ibels often presented a leisurely, everyday view of Paris and its inhabitants, much in the same vein as his friend Toulouse-Lautrec. Both artists contributed heavily to L’Escarmouche (The Skirmish), a publication which appeared in print for a mere three months. “Because of mysterious laws governing placards and posters, [this image] was never displayed on the streets but could only appear inside closed rooms” (Schardt, p. 58).
