Poster, Galerie Edgar Brandt, 1925
Metalsmith Edgar Brandt’s lithographic poster uses the opulent motifs of his decorative ironwork to promote the French Art Deco designers represented in his gallery. The floral and leaf background and curving papyrus leaf recall elements of his designs for door grills, radiator covers, fire screens, and console tables, while the bead-like motif highlighting the letters of Brandt’s name repeats a decorative element he frequently used to frame wrought iron designs.
