This original lithographic poster in 6 colors was designed by Georges Braque for an exhibition of prints and illustrated books at the Galerie Nicolas Rauch in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1958.
Bird themed images with a limited yet subtle color palette are abundant throughout his later years. 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.
Georges Braque was a multimedia artist whose work garnered international attention in world of art. His early work resembles impressionism but after being inspired by a young group of artists in early 20th century Paris known as the Fauves, he transitioned to a more emotional and colorful style. This gorgeous and majestic lithographic poster was printed at the Atelier Mourlot, Paris.
