Joseph Chéret

Joseph Chéret ( France, 1838-1894).

Joseph Chéret, brother of the famous Fin-the Siècle graphic artist Jules Chéret, was son in law of Ernest Carrier Belleuse whom he succeeded as artistic director of La Manufacture Nationale De Sèvres, until his death in 1894.
Unlike the most of his contemporaries de subjects of Chéret were rather playful and allegorical than serious and heavy by symbolism.
The works and titles evoke an atmosphere of dawn, freedom and beauty, butterflies and dragonflies, are humorous and somehow suggestive in anticipation of love and erotics.
Her show the first manifistations of art nouveau.
