Mr. Carzou was known for his figurative style and the diversity of his subjects. Besides illustrating the work of many well-known writers, including Eugene Ionesco and Arthur Rimbaud, he produced painted porcelain and engravings as well as stage designs for the Comedie Francaise and the top ballet and opera houses in Paris. He helped paint the cruise ship France and at the age of 81 finished painting the walls of a chapel in the town of Manosque in Provence.
Posters as an art form were invented by Jules Chéret in Paris in the 1860’s. Their proliferation and refinement were the result of advances in printing technology, a relaxation of laws regulating the press, and a booming demand for the advertisement of ‘modern’ products and of the Parisian lifestyle in the Belle Epoque (1871 – 1914). In journals, books, theater programs, and posters, the graphic arts soon transcended their commercial function and became art objects sought out by art collectors worldwide.
