Auguste Roubille (1872-1955) is a French painter, designer and poster artist. The gifted drawing artist is both one of the greatest cartoonists of the heyday and one of the pioneers of Art Nouveau. In particular in his paintings, Roubille simplifies forms and uses flat areas of color with sometimes violent contrasts. As a result, art historians see him as one of the precursors of symbolism and the Nabis movement. Auguste Roubille masters all techniques and his works show the artist's great sensitivity. He worked in parallel with most of the humorous newspapers of his time and used his pencil stroke to caricature bluntly but with humor.
