Adolphe Mouron Cassandre

Cassandre, Adolphe Mouron (ädôlfˈ mōrôNˈ käsäNˈdrə) [key], 1901–68, French poster artist, b. Russia. By 1923 he was celebrated as the artist of Bûcheron [woodcutter], a poster made for a cabinetmaker. Later works include posters for tennis matches, fairs, magazines, wines, shoes, horse races, steamships, and railways. Cassandre's originality made his designs classics of advertising.
