1897 French 10 3/4 inch x 13 7/8 inch Hard Cover Illustrated Book ETOILES DE MER by Albert Guillaume, with a preface by Abel Hermant.

27 pages of seaside cartoons in colour (blank on the reverse) by Albert Guillaume (1873 – 1942). A French painter and caricaturist. Born in Paris, France, Albert Guillaume became a leading caricaturist during the Belle Époque. While remembered for his poster art, Guillaume also did oil paintings such as “Soirée parisienne,” a portrait of Parisian dinner society. He created theatre posters as well as advertising posters that were greatly influenced by the work of one of the preeminent poster painters, Jules Chéret. Guillaume is also known for satirical drawings that were published in Parisian humor magazines such as Gil Blas, Le Rire, L’Assiette au Beurre, and Le Figaro illustré. These magazines appeared as Parisians started to acquire an increased appetite for arts, culture and politics. Guillaume lampooned the foibles of French society at a time when French governance was frequently characterized by corruption and mismanagement.
