Artist's Museum and Gallery Posters

Some credit Henri Toulouse-Lautrec and Pierre Bonnard with the genesis of not only the modern poster but of the artist's poster as well. The later is a work of art designed specifically as a poster rather than an adaptation of a piece done in another medium. While many of these posters were created to promote a gallery or museum exhibition others were produced to mark a special event (The Olympic Games, Lincoln Center Performances, The Montreux Jazz Festival, The New York Film Festival). Galerie Maeght and Foundation Maeght were the premier publishers of posters by French based European artists. The early posters were printed by Morlot and later ones by Adrian Maeght. Picasso, Miro and Chagall were the three most sought after and prolific poster artists. The series of Vallauris posters by Picasso were done in linocut and woodblock as well as lithography and are highly desirable.

Because this area of collecting has been neglected there is still a great opportunity to acquire an original work of art at an affordable price. Click on the picture to see an enlarged image.
