This poster was designed for a retrospective at the Musée Cantini in Marseille of André Derain's work. The painting that was chosen is from 1906 when Derain was 26 yrs old and on a trip to London when he was still very much a fauvist. It is a reproduction of "Big Ben", 1906, from a series of works he created on the banks of the Thames. There you can see a completely different feeling than the banks of the Seine, each with it's own beauty. Isn't it always a tale of two cities...?

Famous American artist and critic, Leland Bell wrote of Derain in the 1960's:

"It is impossible to get to the bottom, there is always something going on underneath. Whether it is one of his best or one of his minor efforts I get the feeling that he is trying something far out. This intention, always serious and without self-interest, moves me tremendously."
