Posters of A.M Cassandre : A Graphic Revolution


A. M. Cassandre (1901-1968) was a leading graphic designer of the twentieth century who was born in Ukraine and active in France. The geometric and dynamic posters he produced in the 1920s under the influence of Cubism and the Bauhaus had what might be described a “revolutionary” impact on the graphic art world as pioneering expressions in those days. The spectacular composition and sense of speed commonly identifiable in Cassandre’s posters perfectly embodied the age of machinery and mass consumption. In the 1930s, having met the artist Balthus, Cassandre got absorbed in painting. At the same time, he further expanded his stage of activities by working on projects such as the cover of the American fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar. The current exhibition presents his achievements through a collection assembled by the late Ruki Matsumoto, founder and designer of the fashion brand BA-TSU. Matsumoto’s collection of works by Cassandre is internationally renowned for including well preserved examples of representative posters and rare original pictures of the posters painted by Cassandre himself. We hope you will enjoy the sublime poster designs Cassandre attained.
