A poster designed for the Dutch Fur Week, designed by Reyn Dirksen. Designed to promote the Fashion Week that ran from 14 to 19 September 1950, the design shows part of a female with coat and ruby red lips. Very fashionable, very Dutch and perfectly suited to purpose.

A beautiful design by famous Dutch artist Reyn Dirksen that remains in very good, vintage condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina.
