This artwork is from Les Maitres de L’Affiche series; miniature versions of outstanding stone lithograph artworks of the most important advertising posters by the finest artists.
“Carqueville’s large body of posters for Philadelphia based Lippincott’s magazine was completed before he left his native Chicago to study in Paris. On his return, he set up a studio in Chicago, where he had a long productive career as a lithographer, designer and painter…Writing in London, Charles Hiatt praised Carqueville’s ‘skill in making vehement colour contrast’ Case in point: This sporty chap enjoying a pipe decked out in his fashionable tennis whites. His golden beard and hair immediately catch one’s eye, while the textured-burgundy background and periwinkle blossoms maintain an eclectic interest. An exemplary design, executed with primary elan” (Rennert, PAI-XXVIII, 194,196)
