Chapel Scene Poster
France, c. 1900
39 x 55 in (99 x 140 cm)
A serene scene inside a chapel, heavenly light beaming in from the windows, shining on the congregants and the priest.
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.
