Description: Artist: JANE ATCHÉ (1872-1937) Size: 42 3/8 x 56 7/8 in./ 107.7 x 144.2 cm Cassan Fils, Toulouse Of Atché's half dozen known posters, this one for the cigarette paper firm is her most spectacular. We get the lyricism of Art Nouveau in the handling of the green dress and the smoke, combined with a compelling Lautrec-esque management of the solid black cape as it slashes through the design. This is the larger format version of the poster. (great art nouveau)
