Maitres de L’Affiche Plate 66




Hugo d’Alesi created a poster for a lithography exhibit at the 1895 French Centennial exhibition. His subject was one famous to anyone who has visited the City of Lights, a woman examining artwork at a bookstall along side the Seine. One of the prints is by Jules Cheret, publisher of the Maitres┬áseries.






From 1895, this stunning poster by Hugo D’Alesi is in the early travel poster style, highlighted by vignettes of attractions in the region. This one is for the Brittany region of France, the rugged area on the West Coast facing the Atlantic. This poster has been professionally restored with overpainting in the edges and image and some minor ┬ápaper tears.
