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.
Bernard Buffet, on the heels of his success with the New York Lithographic album of 1964, was asked to create an original image. The studio was a part of the Westbeth complex, a newly built, city-funded artist residence in the West village. The artist settled on this unusual view of the building while taking a boat ride on the Hudson River.
This extremely well balance composition is one of Bernard Buffet’s most sought after lithographs. Ed. 1000. Published by Fernand Mourlot. Ref: Sorlier. 120.
