Classic Poster Paper - Excellent Condition A
This rare lithographic poster was created for an exhibition of works that had been donated by the artist's estate to the Louvre Museum in Paris. Henri Deschamps, the master printer at the Mourlot Studio that was assigned to Georges Braque in his lifetime, was chosen to reproduce this work. Ed. 1000.
Merging aspects of the sculptural with the pictorial, Braque was also an innovator in the use of collage, inventing a technique known as papier collé, which he first explored in one early work Fruit Dish and Glass (1912) by attaching pieces of wallpaper to a charcoal drawing.
