This lithographic poster was designed for an exhibition of Charles Lapicque paintings at the Museum in Grenoble, France, in 1962. It was based on an original painting from 1960 entitled "La Matinee d'un Seigneur" and depicts a Bengal tiger resting underneath a tree. It was printed by the Mourlot studio in Paris in 1962.
Lapicque produced some of his first landscape paintings in 1920, while continuing to work in a laboratory as an engineer, where he also researched color perception. He employed fragmented pictorial space, patches of color, and cursory outlines, Lapicque’s style most closely resembled that of Raoul Dufy. He finally abandoned his assistant position at the Faculté des Sciences in 1943 to devote himself entirely to his career as an artist.
