Adolphe Mouron Cassandre (1901 – 1968)

For a brief time, in the late 1930s, the Cubist-Art Deco master posterist, A.M. Cassandre, embarked on a series of stunning Surrealist-inspired covers for the American fashion magazine, Harper’s Bazaar. Thereby, Cassandre would have been captivated by the audacity of Surrealist range, from the depths to the shallows, in order to bring home a big catch of those customers whose elusiveness had driven him to the brink of abandoning commercial graphics.As he segues toward dissolution of his communicative affairs, let's not forget the amazing evocativeness of this artist in all his edgy glory, before he began to push too hard for popular triumphs.
