This lithographic poster by French artist Maurice Brianchon (1899-1979) was created to promote an exhibition at the Musee Galliera for the Salon des Tuileries in 1954. This still life captures the beauty and simplicity of everyday life, as well as the joy that the earth's bounties can provide.
Brianchon was strongly influenced by artists such as Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard. By the time he came of age in the early 1920s the art scene had changed. Brianchon stylistically stayed attached to art that could be called neo-classical.
Brianchon created a small number of beautiful color lithographs, mostly of French society life such as the theatre and beach scenes. His prints are scarce and rare as his production was limited. Brianchon notoriety came later as the United States and Japan appreciated his classical style reminiscent of the late 19th century painters.
