Cassandre; signed his advertising designs Cassandre, sometimes combined with the name Mouron; he planned to drop poster work once he had gained sufficient technical and intellectual maturity to make the leap into the higher regions of easel painting, so he used the cryptic pseudonym Cassandre, by means of which he intended to keep open the possibility of becoming a painter at a later stage under his own name, but continued to use the name Cassandre for the entirety of his career)
