About The Poster: Albert Feraud is a French sculptor who is known for his astonishing sculptural assemblages and mastering of stainless steel as a material for sculpture.
After a traditional education at the French Academy of Fine Arts, Feraud began a career in traditional sculpture and was awared the Grand Prix de Rome. Despite this obvious talent, his artistic career brought him the most success after he sudden decision, in 1960, to begin using recycled material and working form a creative, libertarian approach rather than the rigid methods taught at the academy.
He immediately began experimenting with various metals and came to master the use of stainless steel in sculpture. The year marks the beginning of a series of successful exhibitions for Feraud, in this new style so unique to him. The exhibition advertised by this poster, held at Galerie 7, was his first in this line of work.
We think this poster is not only highly significant but also plainly beautiful. Although the overall condition is good, the poster was once folded and has a slight tear in the top center fold. Ready to frame.
