que je ne m'y avançais qu'avec une sorte de gourmandise. » ~ Marcel Proust

Yet, behaving like a princess is work. It's not just about looking beautiful. It's more about how you are inside." ~ Julie Andrews

Printemps

April 21, 2018 (111/365) • Chéret Posters at the Milwaukee Art Museum





"Colorful, inventive posters advertising Paris’s many entertainment venues, products, department stores, and more in the late nineteenth century made their maker, the French artist Jules Chéret (1836–1932), famous. His work in color lithography, which was previously used for commercial printing, transformed printmaking into a medium that artists today still see as rich for experimentation. This exhibition features highlights from the gift of nearly six hundred Chéret posters to the Museum from local collectors James and Susee Wiechmann. (via mam.org)
