The Art Of Dubonnet
Dubonnet's historic status is especially well illustrated through its series of Art Nouveau advertising posters designed by the likes of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Jules Chéret. Inspired by Madame Dubonnet's pet cats, Chéret was the first to incorporate cats into the brand's advertising, creating an icon that lasts to this day.
Reflecting the aesthetic of the 1890s' Belle Epoque, Dubonnet posters are now regarded as collector's items and an art form in themselves. Images of joyous euphoria became synonymous with the brand, conjuring a culture that basks in the glow of good living, sensual enjoyment and extravagant style. Modern bartenders continue this tradition every time they create a cocktail with Dubonnet, transporting the drinker to a nostalgic past.
Through the ages, Dubonnet continued this artistic tradition by commissioning the finest artists of the time to depict the brand. Other such artists include: Eugéne Ogé, A.M. Cassandre and Claire Masson.
