About The Artist:  Bernard Buffet was a French painter of Expressionism and a member of anti-abstract art group "L'Homme Temoine (Witness Man)". Buffet was born in Paris, France and studied art at L'Ecole Nationale Superieure de Beaux-Arts and worked in the studio of artist Eugene Narbonne (Wikipedia). Sustained by picture dealer Maurice Garnier, Buffet produced religious pieces, landscapes, portraits, and still-lifes. In 1946, he had his first painting, a self-portrait, at the Salon des Moins de Trente Ans at the Galerie des Beaux-Arts and he proceeded to exhibit in one show a year after that. In 1955, he was awarded  first prize by the  magazine Connaissance de Arts, which named the 10 best port-war artists. (Wikipedia) 

Mourlot printed for some of the most important artists of the time, including Cocteau who is quoted to have said “Walls have ears
They even have mouths; Mourlot’s posters display some of their songs, some of their cries.”

Poster is unlined and in good condition.
