About The Poster: As Jack Rennert, of PostersPlease in New York City wrote of this poster "There's a carefree, happy-go-lucky Grün-ishness in this second Sonneville creation for a mid-winter students gala in Bordeaux minus the salacious undertone of decadence. Everything is exuberance and celebration. For the prancing foreground couple that is. The same can't be said for the heart-broken Pierrot in the background. But it does teach us an important lesson: the clown never gets the girl, even if said clown is an integral commedia dell'arte character. Rare!" Poster is linen backed and in excellent condition.
