We virtually never see posters for professional services—but this advertisement for Paul Hankar, one of Belgium's best Art Nouveau architects, is really something special. To promote Hankar's exteriors, Crespin takes an inward dive to illuminate the life within. In this perfectly proportioned work, symbolic forms—from compasses to honeycombs, rulers and protractors—surround the architect as an expression of his own mind. "The warm and vivid coloring further adds, if that’s possible, to the merit of this print which remains one of the best—if not the very best —of Crespin” (Beaumont, p. 48).
