Privat T. Livemont, (1861-1936), Belgium

Privat T. Livemont was born in Schaerbeek, Brussels, Belgium in 1861; he died in Schaerbeek, 1936. He began his studies at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs at Saint-Josse-ten-Noodle and, in 1883; he won a scholarship to study in Paris, where he remained for six years. While in Paris, Livemont worked painting architectural decorations and stage designs and studied evenings with Delaporte at the Ecole Etienne-Marcel. He returned to his native Schaerbeek in 1889 to begin a career as a painter and printmaker, and in 1890 created what would become the first of thirty posters which he would design by the year 1900. The Poster magazine of August/September 1898 devoted a major article to the work of this great Belgian art nouveau designer. It had been insinuated that Privat Livemont was a continuator, or rather an imitator of Mucha. Livemont is viewed as an artist ever seeking original ideas, a lover of his art, and so sure of his own powers that he can rely on himself for inspiration. Livemont was a virtuoso poster lithographer, always drawing the image on the stone himself.
