Hand pulled lithograph on vintage press, sequentially numbered.
The vintage poster was created in 1935 by A.M. Cassandre. The lithograph was recreated using the same hand pulled process on a vintage press in 2001.
Poster and theatre designer, lithographer, painter and creator of typefaces, Cassandre, one of the greatest commercial artists of the the twentieth century, was born in the Ukraine in 1901 and lived for almost 80 years. A friend of Balthus and De Chirico, whose art he deeply admired, he reconciled the ideas of such contemporary avant-garde movements as Cubism, Surrealism and Neue Sachlichkeit, with the demands of commercial Art.
