About The Poster: This poster advertises a exhibition of Pablo Picasso's works presented at the Reattu Museum in Arles. The show displayed unpublished artworks that had been donated to the museum, one of which (showing two figures) was used for the advertising campaign. Musée Réattu is an art museum in Arles, housing paintings, including works by Arles-born painter Jacques Réattu, drawings by Picasso, as well as sculptures and a large collection of photographs. It regularly holds exhibitions of contemporary art.

In terms of art, Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973) is probably the most important figure of the 20th century. Before the age of 50, the Spanish-born artist had become the most recognized name in modern art, with the most distinct style and eye for artistic creation. Prior to Picasso, there had been no other artist who had had such an impact on the art world or had amassed such a following of both fans and critics as he did.

This poster is unlined and in excellent condition.
