The often unappreciated art of posters created during La Belle Epoque.

Posters can be said to be the first effective method of mass communication.
From Les Chats by Edouard Manet to Saxoleine by Jules Cheret and
Moulin Rouge by Toulouse-Lautrec, the inspirational work by generations
of artists made the poster great: magnificent Mucha, socially-conscious
Steinlen and many more. Effective poster design plays on the mind,
but most posters today go unnoticed.
