This is the original lithographic poster, limited to an edition of 1000, for a group exhibition featuring ‘Painters of the Day’ at Musee de Grenoble, from July – September 1969. The poster features a lithograph of a 1956 oil by Picasso titled ‘La Danse’. 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.
