Notes

De Feure was one of the most elegant symbolist painters. Like Mucha (lot 294) de Feure's poster designs, book illustrations and graphic work for journals and magazines played an important part in the development of the Art Nouveau style.

De Feure collaborated with Gaillard and Colonna on the decoration of the Art Nouveau pavilion at the Paris Exposition Universelle. As a painter and watercolourist he exhibited at Le Barc de Boutteville (1892), the Salon de la Rose + Croix (1893 & 1894), the Galerie des Artistes Modernes (1894) and from 1894 onwards at the exhibitions of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts.
