This lithographic poster was created in 1961 to advertise Braque’s appearance at the ‘Salon des Peintres temoins de leurs Temps,’ an annual art exhibition organised first by Isis Kischka in 1951. The central image is taken from a painting entitled ‘Nature Morte a la Palette,’ or ‘Still Life and the Palette.’

The poster was printed 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.
