"L’Affichomania: The Passion for French Posters"
Courtesy the Driehaus Museum Alphonse Mucha, "Princess Hyacinth", 1911.

Immortalized on the walls of cafés, bistros and dorm rooms across the nation, vintage French posters are a decorative staple that date back to the late 1800s. The Driehaus Museum's latest exhibition presents 45 turn-of-the-century French posters from its collection, celebrating the affichomania (the "poster craze") that inspired art collectors to acquire these impressionistic creations from the streets of Paris.
