"Grasset was an apostle of the decorative trend in art, and is often credited with giving a major impetus to the style which was eventually called art nouveau. His creed was the democratization of art in all its expressions, and to this end he worked tirelessly, teaching (and, in the view of some, preaching) his conviction to everyone he could reach. He taught decorative painting at the Ecole Guerin" Eugene Grasse; Posters of The Belle Époque; Rennert.
