Original 1890’s antique poster stone lithograph “CAUDIEUX”

This original Art is Unique, and so is this artist… Henri Toulouse-Lautrec vintage antique “Caudieux”  French poster is archival mounted on acid free archival linen backing.  Printer:  Imp. Chaix, Paris.   A well-loved cabaret French personality in Montmartre, Caudieux is remembered in this rare original vintage poster.

Caudieux was a large, floppy ball of a man, shown here with coat-tails billowing behind him as he exits, stage right. As the actor purses his lips in self-satisfaction after what we can imagine to be a fine performance, a hollow-cheeked audience member gawks curiously up from the orchestra pit. Feinblatt calls this “a study in dynamic motion and concentrated energy . . . and his bustling sweep across the boards is an unparalleled rendering of movement among Lautrec’s posters”

The value of an antique vintage poster such as this one is based on its rarity of the surviving number of prints, the artist, and the desirability of the artwork.  This original French vintage poster was printed by CHAIX, the early stone lithographs created and printed by Jules Cheret who is known as the father of the modern poster.    This valuable vintage poster would have hung outside on the street walls of Paris, poster art for the public.      By the way perhaps this specific poster means that some of the over weight men today have a chance of becoming famous too!
