About This Item
New York: Fleming, Schiller & Carnrick. unbound. Huneker, Clio. Print. Color lithograph. Page measure 12" x 10.75". This 1890s poster announces the avant-garde magazine M'lle New York. It features a drawing of a woman bathed in sunlight falling prey to the seduction of a devil, indicated by a tail and claws on her shoulder. Red coloring encircling the sun carries over into some grasses in the foreground, which contribute to an enticing advertisement for the magazine's often experimental and symbolist content. The drawing is by Clio Hinton Huneker, the wife of M'lle editor James Huneker and a sculpture student of Rodin. The text reads "M'lle New York Is Out Today The Journalistic Orchid Price Ten Cents Every Fortnight At All News-stands." The poster in very good condition. Small chip to top left corner not affecting the image. Stamp on back reads "T.B. Criss." M'lle New York was an avant-garde magazine founded in 1895 by James Gibbons Huneker, a bohemian musician, and Vance Thompson, a Princeton graduate, both of whom had spent time in Europe and become enmeshed in fin-de-siècle literature, drama, and music. Struck by the tameness of New York magazines in comparison to their counterparts in France and London, they put together their pink-and-black-printed attack on American gentility with fiction, poetry, illustration, and decadent critiques--often published anonymously or with pen names--of what they saw as the lowbrow public. Despite the magazine's ridicule of democratic culture, it participated in introducing New Yorkers to the work of some important Modernists. Its editorial run only lasted four years, and while both men went on to continue their cultural crusade in other publications, M'lle New York stands out as as a manifesto of their anti-philistine perspective.
