Biography of Clementine-Helene Dufau (1869-1937)

As one of very few female poster artists, Dufau made a name for herself early on as a painter, and later in her life, as a poster artist. Regularly exhibited at the Salon of the Society of French Artisits, her work became recognized among the names of other elite poster makers. As a poster artist, she championed two causes, children and women. As well as creating a series of posters for the French school system and the Sorbonne, she also produced posters focusing on women's issues in a time when women's rights were not addressed. Dufau was considered a radical during her time and today, her posters serve as a beautiful testament to the continuing struggle for equal rights.
