Part of the famous Belgian "Liege Trio" (Berchmans, Donnay, and
Rassenfosse), whose printer Auguste Bernard (1854-1907) played an
important role in the ascent of the poster artist in Belgium, Rassenfosse
creates clean, effective, well drawn design.
Armand Rassenfosse Belgian engraver and painter. He showed
a taste for drawing and engraving as a child and later, with the encouragement
of his father, who had an art business, he studied occasionally with
the Liege painter and engraver Adrien De Witte (1850-1935), a family
friend. At this time he became interested in contemporary literature
and in the literary review La Jeune Belgique. He also collected the
engravings of Felicien Rops whom he met in Paris in 1886, an event
which was to prove a decisive influence on his career.

with four original lithographs in each. Each commissioned only for
this series. Some of the contributing artists included Mucha, Rhead,
Meunier, Ibels, Steinlen, Willette and Grasset.
