Additional Information: Original L'Andalouise au Temps des Maures vintage art nouveau poster. L'Andalousie au Temps des Maures. Exposition de 1900. Administration 74, Boulevard Haussmann a Paris. Imprimerie CHAIX (Ateliers Cheret). Reference: Broido 523, DFP 265. The Spanish pavilion at the 1900 World's Fair in Paris featured an exhibit of Andalusian art from the time of the Moorish occupation of the Iberian peninsula. The "Moors were Islamic invaders from Africa who entered Spain around the year 700, remaining in power until they were decisively beaten at Granada in 1492." L’Andalouise refers to Andalusia, which, in ancient times, was populated by the Iberians (from Asia Minor and northern Turkey), the Phoenicians (ancestors of Lebanese), the Carthaginians (former inhabitants of current Tunisia) and Tartessians. It is then under the obedience of the Carthaginians and then the Romans. It was occupied by the Moors, in French the Maures, of 711 until 1492. This is what this incredible poster, by the master of color printing Jules Cheret, “L’Andalouise au Temps des Maures” translates to “Andalusia in the Time of the Moors.” The “Moors” refers to the North African Moorish Umayyad army. Their leader’s name was Tariq ibn-Ziyad, and they landed at Gibraltar and brought most of the Iberian Peninsula under Islamic rule in an eight-year campaign. Land of the Vandals is the Arabic name given to the Iberian Peninsula by its Muslim conquerors and consequential inhabitants. – Andalusia.org and Clio.fr Often regarded as the father of the modern poster, Jules Cheret's images had a lasting effect on graphic design so influential that the French government awarded him the Légion d'honneur in 1890 to recognize his work. Most notably, he is remembered for what became known as his "Cherettes," free-spirited depictions of beautiful women who were neither saintly nor overtly sexualized, as was the stereotypical trend of the day. He applies this artistic principle to this lovely advertisement, which he created to generate interest in a Spanish exhibition at the upcoming Paris Exhibition of 1900 detailing Andalusia's Moorish history.
