The art of Henri Privat-Livemont, 1861–1936


left: Absinthe Robette (1896); right: Bitter Oriental (1897).

Henri Privat-Livemont, a Belgian artist and one of the best of the post-Mucha Art Nouveau stylists. I’ve featured his Absinthe Robette poster before but am including it again since it’s my favourite of the ones I’ve seen. All of these are from the Art of the Poster 1880–1918 collection at Lawrence University whose copies can be explored in extreme close-up.


Biscuits & Chocolat Delacre (1896).


Le Masque Anarchiste (1897).
