Happy Birthday, Eugene Grasset (25 May 1845 – 23 October 1917)

Happy Birthday, Eugene Grasset (25 May 1845 – 23 October 1917)

The acclaimed Swiss decorative poster artist would turn 173 years old if he were still alive today. Grasset studied drawing and architecture and worked as a painter and sculptor before he moved to Paris in 1871. It was not until the late 1870s that Grasset became interested in graphic design. He created  his first posters in the mid- to late-1880s. Grasset was famous for his classical portrayal of women. His poster works are considered cornerstones of the Art Nouveau movement.
