T. Livemont, (1861-1936), Belgium
Privat T. Livemont was born in
Brussels, Belgium in 1861; he died in
He began his studies at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs at Saint-Josse-ten-Noodle and, in 1883; he won a scholarship to study
Paris, where he remained for six years. While in
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.
