Artist: Blanchet, Pascal
Pascal Blanchet is a Montreal-based multi-media artist whose graphic works include collaborations with The New Yorker, Penguin Books, and The National Post. His depictions of familiar cityscapes and exotic locales recall art deco masterworks but are grounded in a contemporary vision of the world. Blanchet employs a bold colour palette in his images, which is complemented by references to times gone by and results in a combined sense of nostalgia and romance.
This vintage-inspired poster depicts the grand facade of the Brooklyn Public Library, which is intended to evoke the open pages of a book. Originally constructed in 1912, the library was re-imagined by Alfred Morton Githens and Francis Keally Architects and opened to the public in 1941. This poster belongs to a series from Blanchet's inaugural Montreal exhibition Autour du Monde/Around the World avec/with Pascal Blanchet.
This poster is hand signed by the artist and is in excellent condition. It is ready to be framed - a perfect addition to any home or office.
