This poster was produced in 1955 for an exhibition of Modern Master Paintings at the Galerie Beyerler in Basel. The image chosen was "Tête de Femme" by Pablo Picasso, an oil on canvas from 1921 (ref. Zervos #348). This decidedly classical style work came about around the end of World War I and it was characteristic of weighty and serene figures, donning robes in tactile and simple landscapes. It was heavily influenced by classical Greek and Roman art. This trend in art would go on to dominate the stage in Europe for over a decade. Picasso emerged as a one of the leading figure in this new art direction.
The original painting was reproduced by one of Mourlot's Master Printer, Henri Deschamps, under the supervision and approval of Pablo Picasso himself. Ed. 500. Ref. Czwiklitzer # 103.
