Original turn of the century poster: A Trip to Chinatown, pl. 184.
Original. Les Maitres de l'Affiche PL. 184. Presented in a 16" x 20" acid free archival museum mat. Artist: Beggarstaff

Under the pseudonym Beggarstaff, Sir William Nicholson (1872-1949) & James Pryde (1866-1941) created some truly wonderful modern poster art. The lettering (denoting the name of a musical comedy) was added by the printer after the design left the artists.

This image is the Maitre d'Affiche, but was also printed in a smaller size by Cheret in the 'Posters of Foreigners" Les Affiches Etrangeres illustrees, Angleterre.
