Description

Jacques Villon was a French painter and printmaker associated with the Cubist movement. Working in a colourful, geometric aesthetic, Villon maintained an interest in abstracting form from observation throughout his career. This poster featuring his work, promotes an exhibition at Musée Galliéra in Paris. 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.
