Cassandre was the nom de course of Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron (1901-1968), who claimed he was given the name by an art dealer in 1922. The artist Fernand Leger once said that Cassandre was undoubtedly the one who ‘renovated the ‘art’ of wall posters’ and his eye captured the speed and dynamism of the machine age to perfection. A friend of Dali, de Chirico and Balthus, there was never any compromise in the standard of the richly diverse compositions from the star of the golden age of the poster.
