This is the original exhibition poster for a group show ‘Les Peintres Temoins de leurs Temps’ at the Musee Galliera in 1954. The central lithography is from a painting of Le Havre by Raoul Dufy (1877-1953).

The poster 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.
