The Posters of Achille Mauzan - Catalogue raisonné Mirande CARNÉVALÉ-MAUZAN
As French art historian Alain Weill notes in his preface, Achille Mauzan was for years classified as "a French poster artist, unknown in France." Learning the art of the poster in the years before World War I, when France was still the avant-garde of modern advertising, Mauzan then struck out for Italy, producing some 1500 images for the cinema industry before moving to Argentina in 1927, where he became known as the "father of the advertising poster." His ability to create powerful, salient images was uncanny, and such Mauzan characters as the Geniol man are still part of Argentine popular culture today. Illustrated with hundreds of color and black and white images, this is a comprehensive catalog of his surviving posters, compiled and introduced by his daughter.
This lavishly illustrated art book recency all creations MAUZAN, artist of the 30s, known worldwide for its creative advertising.

Eight sections are the articulation of the item: Posters, Postcards, Paintings, Illustrations, bookplates, Engravings, Sculptures, Decorative Arts.
For each chapter, a presentation is made by contemporary artists and works are shown accompanied by a descriptive and explanatory notes.
