Description1900 Paris Exhibition (c. 1899). Very Good on Linen. French Exposition Poster (36.75" X 51.25") "Andalusia in the Time of the Moors." Jules Cheret Artwork.
Often regarded as the father of the modern poster, Jules Cheret's images had a lasting effect on graphic design so influential that the French government awarded him the Légion d'honneur in 1890 to recognize his work. Most notably, he is remembered for what became known as his "Cherettes," free-spirited depictions of beautiful women who were neither saintly nor overtly sexualized, as was the stereotypical trend of the day. He applies this same artistic principal to this lovely advertisement, which he created to generate interest in a Spanish exhibition at the upcoming Paris Exhibition of 1900 detailing Andalusia's Moorish history. Partially restored, signs of age found in this first time offering from Heritage includes edge wear, creasing, and some tearing. Also partially addressed were scattered chips and paper loss at the borders and lower image. Unaddressed issues include staining and an ink tax stamp in the upper portion.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
