Les Maitres de L'Affiche - 1900 Planche # 195 - Linge Monopole - Maxime Faivret

About the poster:

"Little is known of Roedel, who never wandered far from Montmarte and who managed to insert the symbol of that quarter, the Moulin de la Galette (windmill) in almost all of his posters, including this most charming one of Maxime Faivret's cleaning establishment. The lovely laundress sees three starched shirts walking merrily on the street outside her window" (Rennert, PAI-XVI, 442)

About Les Maitres de L'Affiche:

Maîtres de l'Affiche (Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 color lithographic plates used to create an art publication during the Belle Époque in Paris, France. The collection, reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller 11 x 15 inch format, was put together by Jules Chéret, the father of poster art. The varied selection of prints were sold in packages of four and delivered monthly to subscribers. On sixteen occasions during the selling period between December 1895 through November 1900, the monthly package included a bonus of a specially created lithograph.

About the Artist:

Roedel (1859-1900) was a caricaturist, illustrator, watercolorist and lithographer. He aligned himself in Paris with a group of artists of Montmartre, supplying drawings for Le Courrier francais and producing posters, mostly for the local cabarets and theatres.

Particulars: Each original Maîtres de l'Affiche lithograph has an embossed stamp in the bottom right corner and was printed on thick paper 
It has been professionally conserved by going through a de-acidification and cleaning bath (see poster and print conservation and restoration)
