La Maison Moderne. 1900.
Julius Meier-Graefe’s La Maison Moderne opened in 1899 as a competitor of Bing’s Maison de l’Art Nouveau, both high-end art dealers focusing on the latest in new, modern art—which, at the time, included the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Felix Aubert, and Pierre Selmersheim. The Maison, however, had a generally younger clientele and was more at the forefront of the movement than Bing’s. Orazi, the master lithographer and designer featured at the gallery, created one of the most brilliant masterpieces of the era to promote the gallery. The model, in serene stillness, is surrounded by all manner of delicate object d’art, from elaborate combs to fanciful lamps, curious statues to languid glassware. A tour de force in graphic design!
