At the end of the 19th century, the following artists and designers were all in Paris: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Alphonse Mucha, Aubrey Beardsley, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Vincent Van Gogh, Théophile Steinlen and many, many others. Art, theater and dance were all popular and are well documented in paintings and in poster art. When Toulouse-Lautrec made his first poster in 1891, "Moulin Rouge," the status of the poster was elevated from advertising design to collectible advertising artwork. Jules Cheret and Toulouse Lautrec were at the forefront of poster art, focussing on entertainment, particulaly the Cabaret. ~ Alphonse Mucha followed, advertising everything from entertainment to household products. In 1899 the Italian designer Leonetto Cappiello moved to Paris. Cappiello rejected the detail and "fussiness" of the Art Nouveau style, preferring a simplicity and strength of design, marking the transition into the Art Deco movement and establishing himself as the father of modern advertising. In other parts of the country, posters were also being revived as a new art form. Belgium artist-designer Privat Livemont designed posters which combined Pre-Raphaelite art with Art Nouveau. Edward Pentfield was in New York City, designing for Harper's Magazine, first experimenting with engraving, and later with ink and watercolor wash illustrations.
