This is a 1950's poster for an exhibition paying tribute to Pierre Bonnard at the Musée de Lyon. The artwork used on this poster is a post-impressionist painting from 1908 titled La Toilette (Engl: The Toilet).

Pierre Bonnard (3 October 1867 — 23 January 1947) was a French painter and printmaker, as well as a founding member of the Post-Impressionist group of avant-garde painters Les Nabis. Bonnard preferred to work from memory, using drawings as a reference, and his paintings are often characterized by a dreamlike quality. 

This exhibition poster is unlined, and in great condition, small foxing sign are apparent on the lower margins. Printed by Imp. Mourlot and from a private collection.
