About the poster: The ''Riopelle'' exhibition was presented at the Maeght Lelong Galerie in Paris from November 24th, 1983 to January 13th, 1984. This vintage exhibition poster features the art of Jean-Paul Riopelle, a Montreal-born artist who became the first Canadian painter (since James Wilson Morrice) to attain widespread international recognition. In the 1940s, his style evolved from Surrealism to Lyrical Abstraction (related to abstract expressionism), in which he used a myriad of intricate cubes and triangles of multicolored elements, faceted with a palette knife, spatula, or trowel, on often large canvases to create powerful atmospheres. His work is now largely characterized as being in the Abstract Expressionist style, and his paintings were sometimes even compared to Jackson Pollock's!

About Foundation Maeght: Foundation Maeght was conceived and financed by Marguerite and Aimé Maeght (an art dealer and gallery owner) and continually aims to present modern and contemporary art to the public. Welcoming visitors year-round in a unique, architectural complex designed to present modern and contemporary art in all its forms, they boast one of Europe's largest collections of paintings, sculptures and graphic works of the twentieth century.
