Original Artists' Posters

Many of the world's leading artists have enjoyed making posters for their exhibitions.

These often took the form of original lithographs or screenprints, printed by some of the great Parisian ateliers.

The poster, by nature, is ephemeral and mint copies are rare so we are delighted to offer you these beautiful examples.

Description

Toros En Vallauris 59. Very rare, in an edition of 190 only, an original linocut poster designed and hand cut entirely by Picasso. Signed and numbered, 62/190 by the artist. Published by Arnera, Vallauris.

This poster was designed not as a figurehead copy but as "accompanying graphic" for the exhibition. Picasso plays with the letters. The letters are like windows through which we observe the bullfight. "O" shows a sun and an eye, "T" presents the bullring as an eye in which we see the Picador's pose and the Banderillio gaining the attention of the bull. "R" shows the Matador guiding the bull towards the Picador and underneath the Reserve Picadors wait. "S" shows the scene as the matador chases the bull away.
