Original poster designed by Henri Cassiers for the Universal and International Exhibition of Brussels in 1910.
Animated and colourful, the original poster of the 1910 Brussels World's Fair exists in different text variants and formats. It was Henri Cassiers who won the competition launched by the World's Fair Committee, and his poster immediately became the main visual for the event.
"The artist has combined the festive aspect of the exhibition with the tourist attraction of the city of Brussels. A zeppelin floats above the Grand Place towards the exhibition palaces that can be guessed on the horizon."Scheerlinck
The 1910 Universal Exhibition was held at the Solbosch in Ixelles and was a great success despite the unfortunate fire that destroyed part of the installations, which were immediately rebuilt.
