A wonderful poster for a Paris exhibition at the Musee de l'Orangerie, "From Clouet to Matisse - French Drawings in American Private Collections," featuring a fabulous, expressive drawing by Honore Daumier,
The Daumier drawing chosen to be on this poster is particularly appropriate to the subject of this exhibition. Classic Daumier with a dark wit, showing gentlemen intently studying works of art, poking fun of the public at the famous Paris salons, studying the paintings as if a closer view will bring a better understanding.
This prestigious exhibition was shown in Rotterdam, Paris, and New York, and was dispersed in 1959. It was organized by a special committee under the auspices of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, it was sponsored by the Boymans Museum in Rotterdam, and in Paris by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with the US Embassy.
CONDITION is great. This piece is ready to hang in its original period frame with a linen liner and gold filet. The frame shows normal wear for its age, and there is minor wear and discoloring of the linen liner. Measures 22" x 28" overall, with a sight size of 17 1/2" x 23 1/2".
This is a fine and engaging piece. The image is timeless, the poster is pure vintage, and the combination is perfect for today. Enjoy!
