Born in Lousanne (Switzelrland) in 1841, Grasset was an important decorative artist, painter, sculptor and architect.
In 1871 Grasset moved to Paris where he developed his interest in graphic art, and where he worked as designer for fabrics, mosaics, ceramics and jewels (for Henri & Paul Vever). He designed the facade of the Hôtel de Dumas in Paris, mosaics in Saint Etienne in Braire, stained glass windows in the cathedral at Orléans. However poster-art and books illustrations became Grasset’s most important and income-generating products: he realized the famous illustration “La Semeuse” for the french publisher Larousse and many illustrations for stamps. Grasset also realized many illustrations for important magazines like “L’Estampe et l’affiche”, “Art et Décoration” and the American “Harper’s”.
Grasset – due to his influence on many important artists like Alphons Mucha - is considered a pioneer in Art Nouveau design.
Created after watercolours by Grasset, this lithograph illustrating floral motifs
(including gourds, geranium, cyclamen, nasturtium, thistle, wild rose and others) was depicted from nature and was followed by two further plates of examples of its use in decorative art nouveau schemes. The patterns were typical of Arts and Crafts style, with Art Nouveau nuances.
