"Rhead was one of the first poster artists to gain an international reputation.
Born in England he was quite active in London, New York and Paris with equal success:
his exhibition of posters in New York in 1895 was America's first, and was well
received. He was heavily influenced by Grasset, whom he admired and met while
in Paris" (Rennert, PAI-XXVI 513)
Not unlike the Maitre de L'Affiche series, L'Estampe Modern 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. As well as Mucha, some
of the contributing artists included Rhead,
and Grasset. This is from the series with
the blindstamp in the margin lower right corner.
