“De la caricature à l’affiche”
Exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs
This exhibition highlights the role played by caricaturists from 1900 to 1918. This period fell between the poster’s Golden Age from 1880 to 1900 and its post-war renaissance led by Cubist poster artists. The poster’s prestige as an art form declined at the end of the nineteenth century with the disappearance of its great masters. The exhibition retraces this period, showing its close links with the press and the political and economic contexts conducive to the development of new functions and aesthetics.
