When The Mourlot Studio decided to open a branch in New York City, after a successful exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Institute in 1963, it commissioned several famous International artists to create a series of original Lithographic posters to celebrate the event. Artists such as Calder, Miro and Max Ernst did create images. Of course, Bernard Buffet, on the heals of his success with the New York Lithographic album of 1964, was asked to partake and since the new studio was located next to WestBeth (the newly built artist residence recently built by the city at the time) in the West village. He decided to take a boat and give this striking rendering from a view slightly down river.
To this day, this extremely well balance composition is one of Bernard Buffet’s most sought after lithograph and lithographic posters.
