Italien Stone " Cappelo Bantam" Boccasile c1938
Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron, known as AM.Cassandre was born in Kharkov, Ukraine, on January 24, 1901. In 1918, after attending the Ecole des Beaux-Arts very briefly, he enrolled in Lucien Simon's independent studio and later at the Académie Julian. Soon obliged to earn his own living, Mouron designed several posters, possibly as early as 1921; they were done in a caricatural style which was probably derived from the German School. Almost all of these early works have been lost.
