1e Exposition d’Art Décoratif. 1894.
Grasset created the first poster for the first annual show of decorative arts. It was the beginning of a movement that culminated in 1925 with a widely acclaimed exhition that introduced Art Deco as a major trend in a wide field of applied arts. At this early stage, Grasset represents Art Deco as a lightly draped nude, manipulating flowering branches, hinting at Art Deco's preoccupation with themes from nature as ornamental elements.
