This original lithographic poster was designed by well known French artist Bernard Buffet for an exhibition of Mourlot Lithographs in 1980 at the Tokyo Central Museum. As early as the mid 1950s, Buffet’s work was often presented in Japan, where the popularity of abstract painting was at its highest. Buffet impressed many Japanese artists with the strong expression and the straight black lines characteristic of his works.
In turn, Bernard Buffet fell in love with Japan early on, taking many trips there and creating beautiful artworks that paid homage to its beauty and culture. Several museums there have seriously collected his works and the Bernard Buffet Museum opened in Nagaizumi near Mount Fuji. Ed. 1500. Published by Maurice Garnier. Ref: Sorlier 353 (bis)
