"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)
