More About this Item

Description: Artist: EUGENE GRASSET (1841-1917) Size: 27 x 43 in./68.4 x 109.4 cm Imp. Georges Petit, Paris Grasset did much to introduce the concept and practice of Art Nouveau in France. In fact, Grasset "brought Art Nouveau to the aid of the poster: it was to become a worldwide vehicle of the art of advertising. In France, Grasset was the pioneer of an attempt, like that of William Morris in England, to reconcile art and industry” (Weill, p. 32). And much in the same manner as he did for the first annual show of decorative arts in 1925 (see PAI-XXX, 230) – which introduced Art Deco as a major trend in the field of applied arts – Grasset represents all things artistic with a beautiful woman lost in floral distraction. Rare!
