Description:
Set of Four original silkscreen created by Gaspar Camps, a contemporary of Alphonse Mucha.  Camps became one of the few important artists, like Mucha, hired by the Champenois printing house. Camps works are far more rare than Muchas, and considered to be superior by many.  

Gaspar Camps  1874-1942 was a painter, draftsman, illustrator, and poster designer who embraced Art Nouveau movement with his vibrant graphic poster art.

Gaspar Camps was born in Igualada Spain in 1874, and studied at the School of Fine Arts in Igualada and Barcelona. Between 1894-1897 he studied in Paris, and was the pupil of Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant, William Bouguereau, and Jean-Paul Laurens.  

Camps was strongly influenced by Alphons Mucha, the Czech artist, when Mucha was at the height of his career.  When Mucha left Europe for a sojourn in the United States, Camps was often referred to as "Catalan Mucha".  

In 1905, he settled in France, and was commissioned to paint eight watercolors to illustrate "Cyrano de Bergerac", which earned him critical success.  He then joined a printing company, B. Sirven, and served as the artistic director for 25 years.  

Camps favorite subject was the Spanish woman dancer in traditional costume, and the women often strongly resembled his wife, Cristina Dotti.  He also favored the "emancipated", or femme nouvelle woman, who rejected the conventional ideals of femininity, domesticity, and subservience.  He often depicted women smoking a cigarette, or drinking champagne.  

His works are found in Spanish museums such as Barcelona Museu del Modernisme Catala' and Biblioteca Nacional de Espana. In France his works are found in the Rennes Brittany Museum.
