The hand of Picasso is immediately evident in this Galerie 65 poster. The brushstrokes - hurried and expressionistic form an owl, flower, and glass in the forefront of the image. In this playful and colorful visual endeavor, we can also observe Picasso's use of freehand lettering in both the name of the gallery space and dates that the exhibition was held- August 14th to September 30th.
In the 1950’s, Mourlot Freres, a French printing company printed many original posters of important artists of the day. In 1959 the company printed the series Affiches Originales for collectors. Affiches Originales refers to the reduced lithographic versions of the original posters created by contemporary visionaries such as Picasso, Chagall, Braque, Matisse, Miro, Leger, and Dufy. Unfortunately, there is little information on Galerie 65 located in Cannes or the exhibition that this specific poster was illustrated for.
