This wonderful lithographic and photographic poster was created as a mixed media to promote an exhibition of Jacques Prévert's surrealist and symbolistic collages at the Chateau Grimaldi in Antibes in 1963. Picasso came to the opening himself and there is a wonderful interview of the poet in the French Archives online here:
This was a small edition of 500 and about 15 printed on Arches (signed and unsigned). The original collage in still in the Archives of The Mourlot Collection and dedicated to Fernand Mourlot.
