In Privat Livemont’s exceptionally colored, detailed posters, beautiful women hold glasses of absinthe aloft as though receiving a sacred elixir from the gods. The Belgian artist was renowned for his absinthe-themed Art Nouveau advertisements. Originally a painter, his career took an unanticipated turn when a poster he designed won first prize prompting his to learn lithography. Livemont's (1861 – 1936) iconic works are displayed in museums and galleries worldwide.
