Beautiful poster from 1899 to promote the Salon des cent (also called "Salon des 100" or "Salon de La Plume") which was a French art exhibition.
Conceived by Léon Deschamps, it was launched in Paris in 1894 in the hall of the magazine La Plume.
The idea was to exhibit and sell mainly prints and drawings, in association with a literary and artistic periodical. The last edition, the fifty-third, took place at the end of 1900.
Born in Moissac to a miller father, Firmin Bouisset began his career by illustrating numerous children's books which were extremely successful at the time, but it is through his posters that Firmin Bouisset is still known today.
Among his most emblematic works, we find the Little Menier writing on a wall and the little schoolboy of LU, which are still part of our advertising landscape but also of our heritage.
Bouisset was in his time the painter of childhood.
Note that he always took his children as models: Yvonne his daughter for the Menier chocolate or Jacques, his son, for the little LU.
