This artist work in this image is very similar to Rene Gruau. "The flagship Galeries Lafayette store was unveiled in all its glory at its inauguration in October 1912. Théophile Bader dreamed of creating a “luxury bazaar” where the sheer abundance and luxury of the merchandise on offer would wow the crowds! Golden light, filtered through the domed roof, would flood the grand hall and set the products aglow. The magnificent building wasdecorated in the style of Paris Art Nouveau. The banister of the magnificent staircase was inspired by the Paris Opera House. The dome, rising to a height of 43 metres, soon became the iconic symbol of Galeries Lafayette. Every detail was breathtaking, for example the Neo-byzantine style stained glass windows or the exquisite ironwork featured on the balconies. Shopping was becoming a leisure activity as the monied class grew in size and wealth. At the very top of the building, the rooftop terrace offered a panoramic view of Paris. (The artist is well known for his Cold War Superman Style Poster By Roman Cieslewicz USSR and USA supermen running side by side.)
