Charles Gesmar Original Jane Pierly Poster, 1925 'Signed'

$7,500

About

Framed large poster of chanteuse Jane Pierly smoking a cigarette in a fur wrap by noted artist Charles Gesmar, printed by H. Chachoin, France 1925 (signed on front). These were done in small editions and this one is considered one of his best and rarest. Charles Gesmar (born Geismar), simply known as Gesmar, was one of the greatest designers of costumes and posters during the golden age of the Paris music hall during the Jazz Age and was primarily renowned for his work for the great Parisian star Mistinguett. Although his tenure was short, his output was prolific and his creativity and talent unrivalled at the time. Gesmar’s costumes and graphics caused as much excitement at the time as that shown a few years earlier by the elegance of Leon Bakst’s Ballets Russes. The seductive and sophisticated elegance of his art influenced generations of graphic designers and he was indisputably a bridge linking the works by other two great artists who worked for the Moulin Rouge, Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) and René Gruau (1909-2004). Gesmar allegedly died of pneumonia in February 1928, before his 28th birthday.
