Artist: Cheret, Jules
(1836 - 1932)
Cheret is a celebrated painter and lithographer who is considered to be the father of the modern poster. Chéret studied both the techniques of various artists, past and present, by visiting the masters seen in Parisian museums and learning the technology of lithography at school. This combination allowed him to become a master artist and brilliant technician who's work was seen all over the streets of Paris. Cheret's poster's became hugely popular and illuminated the streets of Paris. During La Belle Epoque, Cheret caused a color revolution, allowing a sense of fun, fantasy, laughter, and gaiety to dazzle the streets of Paris in a way that had not existed before. In 1890 he was awarded the Légion d'honneur by the French Government for his outstanding contributions to the graphic arts.
Today works by Jules Cheret are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg Russia, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, MOMA, Musee d'Orsay in Paris, and The National Gallery of Art, to name a few.
Cheret revolutionized the field of advertising by his contributions in design and printing techniques; designing over 1500 posters.
