Woman Sculpting / Woman Painting. 1901.
These are two of Livemont’s graphic works designed as decorative panels: one is a particularly tender study of an artist critically examining her sculpture, and the companion piece features a young lady intent on her painting. Both have a similar ornamental background. Livemont started out as an interior designer in his home town of Schaerbeek, Belgium. He came to poster art after entering a poster contest on a whim and winning it. By 1898, The Poster magazine called him “the uncontested master of Belgian posterists.”
