Story / Additional InfoThe father of modern poster art and a critical figure in the development of the French Belle Époque style, Jules Chéret was the first artist to work with color lithography. Finding little success in France due in part to inadequate printing technology, Chéret moved to London and began designing perfume packaging for Rimmel during the 1860s.

Jules Cheret - France
Art Brokerage: Jules Cheret French Artist: B. 1836-1932: Cheret's importance is artistic, technical, and social. His innovations in lithography paved the way for the ascendence of the poster and the lithographic print in the late 1800s. The poster as historical artifact has both defined and immortalized an era. He was awarded the Légion d'honneur by the French Government in 1890 for his outstanding contributions to the graphic arts. Although his paintings earned him a certain respect, it was his work creating advertising posters, taken on just to pay his bills but eventually his dedication, for which he is remembered today. In 1933 he was honored with a posthumous exhibition of his work at the prestigious Salon d'Automne in Paris. Over the years, Chéret's posters became much sought after by collectors from around the world. He has been called the father to the modern poster. Listings wanted.
