When The Mourlot Studio opened 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.
This 1967 original six color lithographic poster was Alexander Calder's contribution to the project. Featuring primary colors and biomorphic shapes, the imagery in Calder’s lithographs is often reminiscent of his sculptural work. While many of Calder’s prints might appear abstract, a closer look will reveal symbols of stars, plants or animals. Ed. 1000.
