Description

Absinthe Robette (1896) Classic poster art printed on wood in the selected format

Art: Absinthe transfixes a young beauty in Privat Livemont’s “Absinthe Robette.” The late 19th-century absinthe craze coincided with the popularity of large lithographic posters as advertisements and independent works of art. Created in 1896 and considered to be Livemont’s masterpiece, the work drew immediate acclaim for its remarkable design and sheer, subtle shades of green. This iconic Art Nouveau image has spawned millions of reproductions, and the original is the absinthe poster most coveted by collectors.

The artist, Henri Privat-Livemont (1861–1936) was born in Schaerbeek, Brussels, Belgium. He is best known for his Art Nouveau posters. From 1883 to 1889, he worked and studied in the studios of Lemaire, Lavastre & Duvignaud. He, with Lemaire, created the decor of the Theatre Francais as well as the Hôtel de Ville, Paris. He later moved back to Brussels, and worked on theaters and casinos there. In 1897 worked on the poster for the Brussels International Exposition
