1952 Original French Alcohol Poster, France Champagne Exhibition
Size: 9.25 x 12.25 inches
Artist: Bonnard, Pierre (After)
About The Poster: A vintage original lithograph print of Pierre Bonnard's 1891 poster for France Champagne, published in a 1952 catalogue raisonné. Pierre Bonnard was a "French painter, printmaker and photographer. He is known particularly for the decorative qualities of his paintings and his individual use of colour. During his life he was associated with other artists, Édouard Vuillard being a good friend, and he was a member of the Nabis." (Oxford University Press, 2009). Interestingly, this poster greatly inspired Toulouse-Lautrec, who had his famous poster for the Moulin Rouge produced by Bonnard's printer.
