Helen Chavin. One of the very early Cappiello posters for an entertainer; this is a great turn of the century re-creation directly from the original vintage stone lithographic poster; not a photograph. This allows us to produce the most accurate re-creation of vintage posters ever available. The original poster was designed by Cappiello for the entertainer Helene Chauvin, to advertise her appearance in the Jean Lorrain play titled "La Belle aux Cheveux d'Or" (“The Beauty with the Golden Hair.”) which opened at the Olympia in 1900. It is noteworthy that this poster was Cappiello’s first design for a stage personality rather than for a specific play or theater. This is the second poster printed by Cappiello at Cheret's printing house, the imprimerie Chaix. This poster is featured in the book Posters of the Belle Epoque: the Wine Spectator Collection. It is also featured (as the third plate) in the book, “The Posters of Cappiello.” And now is your opportunity to own a great copy of this original.
Mastered directly from a 1 to 1 file of an original stone lithograph this recreation provides you with all the fine details that you will see in the antique original. Printed on acid free 230-250 gm paper with 100+ year archival ink. Optional additional sizes available as well as print on fine American art canvas. The watermark does not appear on your print.
