The original painting by Raoul Dufy that was chosen to be reproduced by the Museum is entitled "Les Astres" (the stars), and it is currently located in the collection of Centre Pompidou. It is dated 1948, but its subtitle says it all: "Projet pour l'affiche inaugurale du Planétarium du Palais de la Découverte", which means that Dufy always intended it to be used as a poster to promote the Planetarium at the Museum.
This magnificent and extremely rare lithographic poster after Raoul Dufy was created in eight colors for the Palais de la Decouverte, a science museum located in the Grand Palais, off the Champs Elysees and was it promoted its Planetarium. The Planetarium at the Palais de la Decouverte, is made of a dome of 15 meters in diameter on which the night-sky and all celestial phenomena are presented.
