Damaré

1903 Original French Art Nouveau Poster, Parisiana La Dominicaine

$1,570.00

Date: 1903
Size:  35 x 49.5 inches
Artist: Damaré

The Parisiana was a play house or theatre, much like the Folie Bergeres. We know of other posters produced by Damaré for this hall, yet no biographical data for Damaré is available. He (or she) worked for the Folies Bergères, the Olympia and other top music halls for years, always coming up with humorous, attention-grabbing designs of this sort. With no particular information on this play available (lost in smoke, as it were), we have to imagine that La Belle Otero was thinking of becoming a nun ... or something... Poster is in excellent condition, linen-backed and measures 35 x 49.5 inches.
