About

Partake in a very special collection!

The Maitres de l'Affiche (1896-1900) Posters that I am selling at Authentic Posters were all collected by my husband and I on our business travels to France, England, New York, and L.A.
They were a "treat" for us after a long day of work.
We just loved that they were printed on such fine art paper and that the printing itself is of such high quality.
The original billboard street posters that are still available are often damaged and it is very expensive to linen back them.
Who can afford "original" art nouveau posters?
Who can even afford to frame one of these huge pieces?
And even if your answer to these questions is "I can"... then how many can you hang before you run out of wall space?

Our "lovelies" have been museum archived since we purchased them.
We framed and hung quite a few in our home and at my shop; but we kept buying more in the hopes of getting a bigger place. Well, they are so lovely; we couldn't resist.

Now that we are in our mid sixties, we want to make sure that these authentic works of art get homes where they will be enjoyed and cared for in the years to come.

Since our collection is probably close to a 100 different Maitres de l'Affiche, please feel free to inquire about any that I have not yet listed.
Etsy is my only venue for Maitres de l'Affiche posters.
Thank you very much for your interest!
Wally.

    Hi! My name is Wally and I have collected Art since I was old enough to hang things on my wall. These lovely Maitres de l'Affiche were a way to collect some of the most wonderful works by some of the finest artists of the 19th Century. Enjoy!

Greetings!
I have collected art since I was a student at university.
Posters for rock concerts, demonstrations, art exhibits, products, etc.
As I saw more of the world and took some art history courses my appreciation for the world's art grew.
Poster design was the day job for many artists in the 19th and 20th century.
The Maitres de l Affiche (Masters of the Poster) made it possible to collect wonderful works by otherwise unaffordable artists.
The colors and the detail of these 240plus lithographs was often much better than the original billboard posters. The street posters were printed on cheap paper and often huge; meant to be seen from across the street.
The Maitres de l Affiche is a collection of the best posters created at the end of the 19th century. The French artist Jules Cheret wanted to immortalize these unique works of art. He conceived folios of prints that were sold to the public by subscription. To make this work they included artists from the rest of Europe, the U.K. and the U.S.A. They were downsized to 11" X 15", on fine lithographic paper, and embossed by the publisher; Chaix in Paris.
