About The Poster: One of the best-known artists of the Art Deco generation, A.M. Cassandre’s posters not only defined the highly stylized geometric romance between image and text, but also highlighted the increasing use of marine and railroad transport. His ability to transmit the concept of speed and movement was trend-setting (as was his later use of photo-montage), and his posters are often considered the epitome of Art Deco style and elegance.
Cassandre was a painter, commercial poster artist, typeface designer, and stage designer. Born in 1901 in Charkov, Ukraine, Cassandre went to Paris in 1915, studying painting at the École des Beaux-Arts and the Académie Julian. Cassandre belonged to avant-garde circles and had many well-known friends in artistic, musical and social circles. A.M. Cassandre earned a reputation as the designer of bold, stringently geometric posters in the Art Déco style.
