Spainby Gasper Camps
Sirven Geranium Senorita Flamenco Poster
Gasper Camps, a Spaniard who spent most of his career in France, was one of a number of artists hired by the Champenois printing hosue to fill the void when Mucha left for America in 1904. Creating both advertising and decorative works, Camps eventually found his own groove--less graphic than Mucha and more akin to oil painting, marked by soft edges and shadings, as well as loads of sentiment. This exquisite Art Nouveau celebration of beauty--female and natural--are executed with meticulous workmanship and lithographic skill.
