Absinthe transfixes a young beauty in Privat Livemont’s “Absinthe Robette.” The late 19th-century absinthe craze coincided with the popularity of large lithographic posters as advertisements and independent works of art. Created in 1896 and considered to be Livemont’s masterpiece, the work drew immediate acclaim for its remarkable design and sheer, subtle shades of green. This iconic Art Nouveau image has spawned millions of reproductions, and the original is the absinthe poster most coveted by collectors.
This art print displays sharp, vivid images with a high degree of color accuracy. A member of the versatile family of art prints, this high-quality reproduction represents the best of both worlds: quality and affordability. Art prints are created on paper similar to that of a postcard or greeting card using a digital or offset lithography press.
About the Artist
In Privat Livemont’s exceptionally colored, detailed posters, beautiful women hold glasses of absinthe aloft as though receiving a sacred elixir from the gods. The Belgian artist was renowned for his absinthe-themed Art Nouveau advertisements. Originally a painter, his career took an unanticipated turn when a poster he designed won first prize prompting his to learn lithography. Livemont's (1861 – 1936) iconic works are displayed in museums and galleries worldwide.
