Les Maitres de L'Affiche - 1900 Planche # 219 - 2e Exposition des Peintres Lithographes

About the poster:

Gottlob created very few posters in his career and this is one of the few advertising a poster exhibition, in which he was one of the participants. It's "a most interesting design, featuring a woman going through a display cradle of prints. The shadows on the front of her dress and the use of bright yellow in the background create the effect of backlighting and give the scene an air of intimacy it would otherwise lack" (Wine Spectator, 108).

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:

Fernand-Louis Gottlob (1873-1935) was a French graphic artist whose caricatures appeared in many humorous magazines.  He worked as a lithographer and a painter. He created portraits, illustrations for books and caricatures that appeared in popular magazines in Paris including Le Rire, Le Journal Amusement and Sourire. His work began to be shown in the official salons in 1891. In addition to portraits he painted cityscapes of Paris and landscapes of Normandy and Brittany.
