Boy with Hats Poster
France, c. 1900
39 x 55 in (99 x 140 cm)
A charming poster of a young, curly-haired boy carrying two hats under his arms and wearing one oversized top hat on his head.
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 respected art form in itself.
