Guillaume Lekeu Poster

France, 1894
39 x 55 in (99 x 140 cm)
ID #LB39x55-Z-100

Poster advertising a concert in homage of the works of composer Guillaume Lekeu, who had died just that year in 1894. The performance was to be held in the Salle d'Harcourt in Paris and conducted by one of Lekeu's mentors, Vincent d'Indy.

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.
