French art deco poster made in 1927. Cassandre, who was the uncontested leader of French poster-makers between the two world wars, still remains on a worldwide level the best-known and recognised graphic artist of the period: collectors will pay a fortune for his originals. With only a few exceptions, the hundred-odd posters he produced between 1925 and 1935 have a strength and impact which mark a difference from even his most talented competitors. As the American writer Paul Rand put it: “there can only be one Cassandre per century”, and Blaise Cendrars hailed Cassandre as the “street’s stage director”. In a grey/gold contemporary wooden frame and protected by glass.
