The Dutch Museum of Lithography presents, for the first time since 1904!, a unique retrospective of the lithographic oeuvre of Privat-Livemont, master of Belgian art nouveau.

Mucha

Privat-Livemont (1861-1936) was one of the most productive graphic artists in Belgium. He made his breakthrough in 1896 with his famous advertising poster for the Belgian absinthe brand Absinthe Robette. His art nouveau style was very popular with Dutch, Belgian and French entrepreneurs, including Cacao Van Houten, Boldoot and Bols. His work is often mentioned in the same breath as prominent contemporaries such as Alphonse Mucha and Adolphe Crespin.

Sgrafitti

In addition to his popular art nouveau posters, Privat-Livemont was also as a painter-decorator responsible for many of the sgraffiti drawings on art nouveau façades in Brussels.Despite the popularity of his work, Privat-Livemont's collection became fragmented not long after his death. Therefore, Privat-Livemont's oeuvre was last exhibited in the Netherlands more than a century ago.
