This is the original lithographic poster for a tribute exhibition to Antonio Machado (Antonio Cipriano José María y Francisco de Santa Ana Machado y Ruiz, 1875 – 1939). Machado was a Spanish poet and one of the leading figures of the Spanish literary movement known as the Generation of ’98.
The poster features a work by Pablo Picasso and was produced by Atelier Mourlot, a fine art lithographic printers who, in the early 20th century, invited some of the most celebrated artists of the time to the studio to collaborate on traditional stone lithography. Artists such as Braque, Calder, Chagall, Dufy, Léger, Matisse, Miró and Picasso worked with Mourlot to produce visually striking lithographs that were used as posters to promote the artists’ work or exhibitions and pasted up all over cities. Today, these beautifully lithographed posters make the perfect interior decoration and are collectable works of art in their own right.
