The original poster advertising a 1955 exhibition of works by Fritz Glarner, ‘Rythme de New York’, at Galerie Louis Carre, Paris.

Fritz Glarner was a Swiss-American painter and a leading proponent of so-called Concrete Art, an artists’ movement whose roots lead back to the painters of De Stijl and the principles of the Bauhaus. He was a disciple of Piet Mondrian, strongly influenced by Mondrian’s theories of “dynamic symmetry.”

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.
