Georges Ripart Biography
Georges Ripart was a student of M. Le Rat in Paris. As an accomplished artist, Georges Ripart was admitted to the Societaire des Artistes Francais shortly after 1909. On the same date, he received an honourable mention for his work from that society. Ripart made his artistic reputation on both large lithographic compositions, such as this original example of Bieres Laubenheimer (Laubenheimer Beer) and on his aquatints and watercolours.
The Art Nouveau movement reached its highest form of artistic expression in the large, lithographic posters of Lautrec, Mucha, Cheret, Steinlen, Grasset, Rhead, Bradley, Georges Ripart and others. The Lithograph printed in colours allowed these masters of the turn-of-the-century era to express themselves in broad lines and graceful applications of colours. Their art forever changed our way of seeing.
