Schoolboys at the River Poster

France, c. 1900
39 x 55 in (99 x 140 cm)
ID #LB39x55-Z-133

A charming poster of a group of schoolboys, two in tweed suits, one in a sailors outfit, and the last in a blue suit with a graduation cap. They stand by—and some in—a river, carrying tools to catch fish.

It was in the 1890s that the poster started being more widely recognized as form of artistic expression. The poster became an integral part of the cityscape during the Belle Epoque, turn of the century period in Europe—its colorful, larger than life images both indispensible to advertising and a venerated art form in itself.
