Lucien Lefevre Original Poster “Cacao Lacte” 1896 Chaix

About

Artist: Lucien Lefevre French (1850-1902) Plate: PL. 11, circa 1896 Title: Cacao Lacte Condition A. Original lithograph from "Les Maitre de L'Affiches" series. Printed by Imprimerie Chaix, Paris, 1896. An extremely popular maitre image owing to the wonderful combination of the child, the dog, and chocolate milk. Set against a vibrant red and blue background, Lefeve creates a design worthy of his mentor Jules Cheret, whom Lefeve was a pupil of when he worked at the Chaix printing shop. "Obviously the concept of sharing hasn't made its way into this hot chocolate loving lad's lexicon as of yet. But can you really blame him. We're not talking about any old cocoa here. That's a bowl of Cacao Lacte he's keeping from the begging pup at tongue's length, "the most superior of all known chocolates and cocoas," no doubt made that way from the kiss of milk hinted at in the beverage's name. While only producing posters since 1893, Maindron wrote in his 1896 book that Lefevre, who received his training from Cheret, was mapping out an active career in which he was showing not only much promise, but an individual style whose work to date (including this image) could only be judged as "outstanding" (pp. 82-83)".
