Eugène Grasset

Eugene Grasset
Eugène Grasset was a Swiss illustrator, poster artist, sculptor and designer who was instrumental in the creation of the Art Nouveau style.

Though not well known in the U.S. today, his poster art, in particular, was was very popular here in the late 19th century.

In addition to his own work, Grasset was an influential design teacher in Paris.

There is a monograph on Grasset, but it doesn’t seem readily available. You can find his designs, however, in several sources on Art Nouveau.

  1. My ‘accent grave’ key is not working either.
    The usual diacritic marks are the acute ( ´ , accent aigu), the grave ( ` , accent grave), the circumflex ( ˆ , circonflexe), the diaeresis ( ¨ , tréma), and the cedilla ( ¸ , cédille).
