Design for an exhibition poster, pen and gouache drawing by Gustave Flasschoen from 1910. Size: approx. 40 x 30 cm.

Gustave Flasschoen was a Belgian artist, born and died in Brussels (1868-1940). He was a painter, draftsman, illustrator, and graphic artist, but started as a designer of art posters and books.

This poster design was for an exhibition of the “Association d’Art Union” at the Musee Moderne in Brussels.

The “Association d’Art Union” was a Belgian artists’ association founded in 1904, organizing exhibitions and events to give artists the opportunity to showcase their work to a broader audience. By supporting such activities, the association aimed to promote artistic exchange and contribute to the development of the art scene in Belgium.

Brussels was an artistic crossroads, a hotbed of artistic experiments and cultural innovations. The art scene in that period was influenced by various movements, including symbolism, impressionism, and the beginning of modernism. As we see, the Belle Époque audience is eager to visit its exhibition at the Musee Moderne.
