"As a poster designer, Meunier knew how to organize well-observed
detail to create an almost musical ambiance... (with) compositions
that are gravely meditative, clean and synthetic... The Son of Belgian
engraver Jean-Baptiste Meunier and nephew of sculptor Constantin Meunier,
Henri seems to have come by his artistry in a genetic fashion. After
completing brilliant studies at the academy in his native Ixelles,
he went on to pursue many fields: printmaker, poster designer, graphic
reporter and book binder. Oostens-Wittamer characterizes his poster
work as focused on bringing out opposing light and dark values within
his often large, contained, flowing masses of color" (Belle
Epoque 1970 p.68)
Not unlike the Maitre de L'Affiche series, L'Estampe
Moderne was a portfolio printed between 1897-98, published
by Imprimerie Champenois, Paris, contained 24 monthly portfolios,
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.
