This poster was produced in the 1980s to promote an exhibition of Roman art from the du Berry region in France. The show was on display at the Maison de la culture de Bourges (the Palace of Culture in Bourges) from July 22 to September 4, 1983.
The Berry region now consists of the départements of Cher, Indre, and parts of Creuse. Berry is notable as the birthplace of several kings and other members of the French royal family, and was the birthplace of the famous knight Baldwin Chauderon, who fought in the First Crusade. In the Middle Ages, Berry became the centre of the Duchy of Berry. It is also known for an illuminated manuscript produced in the 14th–15th century called Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry. The Berry churches are mainly Romanesque and most of them have old frescoes, as well as a "caquetoires" or "conversation chairs."
