Grasset did much to introduce the concept and practice of Art Nouveau in France. In fact, Grasset "brought Art Nouveau to the aid of the poster: it was to become a worldwide vehicle of the art of advertising. In France, Grasset was the pioneer of an attempt, like that of William Morris in England, to reconcile art and industry . . . Interested as he was in all the applied arts, he came naturally to the poster" (Weill, p.32)
