This very rare lithographic poster was created for the exhibition 'Braque's Studio' in 1961. At age seventy nine, Braque became the first living artist to exhibit a solo show at the Musée du Louvre. Braque was also famously commissioned to paint a ceiling fresco at the Louvre in 1953- 'The Birds' is still on permanent display at the museum.
During the summer of 1955, Braque visited a bird sanctuary in Camargue, an experience that furthered his interest and led to many works that include birds in their compositions.Ed. 1000.
