This lithographic poster to promote the 24th festival in Avignon, features one of Pablo Picasso's later works. As Picasso developed this series during the late 1960s and into the 1970s, the musketeer became a multi-dimensional figure, exhibiting a range of personalities including card players, musicians and pipe smokers, illustrating the artist's own adventures as a bon vivant. It was Mourlot's Master Printer, Henri Deschamps, who was asked to reproduce the original painting "Homme a l'épée" from 1969, again, under the supervision and approval of Pablo Picasso.
These late portraits actually represent a psychological projection of a complex identity, illustrating the blend of influences and contrary personas that made up Picasso’s mental backdrop.
