About The Poster: 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 was printed in one of Paris's most reputable print shops, Atelier Mourlot. It was created for an exhibition at Galerie Lucie Weill, a gallery established in 1930 near the Ecole de Beaux Arts in Paris and known for featuring artists (whether individually or in group shows) who work on paper. In more recent times, they've expanded to include works in other mediums such as video installation and photography.
