    Description

    Cinèma Pathé Advertisement (Pathé, c. 1909). Horizontal French Grande (46.25" X 61.5") Adrien Barrère Artwork.
    A premier advertising artist of the early 1900s, former law and medical student Adrien Barrère got his start creating caricature artwork for concerts held at Parisian cafes and met with almost immediate popularity. Soon, his distinct style caught the attention of Pathé Cinemas, who became his biggest client. Here, he proclaims the theatre's family appropriate entertainment with the text, "All lead their children there!" Barrère also touts the sophisticated technology of moving pictures with the images of Europe's most influential leaders, like France's President Fallieres, King Edward the VII of England, Russia's Czar Nicholas and Empress Alexandra, Spain's King Alfonso XIII, King Leopold II of Belgium, and King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy. A rare piece and a first time offer from Heritage, this stone litho poster is in excellent condition for its over one hundred years of age. Light touchup has been applied to the folds, small tears, and pinholes in the borders. There was a diagonal tear from the lower border into the image area and another in the image at the lower horizontal fold. The poster has a post-restoration scuff at the bottom. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $3,500 - $7,000.
