Nice Travail Et Joie Vintage Lithographic Poster 1947 by Henri Matisse
Fernand Mourlot first met Henri Matisse in 1937 after printing a reproduction of his canvas Le Reve (the Dream) for the Exhibition of Masters of Independent Art at the Petit Palias. They developed a close relationship following this collaboration and created many significant lithographic posters that showcase Matisse' unique cut out aesthetic toward the end of his career that is loved and collected to this day.
The magnificent Nice Travail Et Joie Vintage lithographic posters were printed at Mourlot in 1947 to promote the famous French Riviera and were immediately sought after by collectors and are difficult to obtain today. This work is one of the original vintage posters and is now available at DKH for collectors of Matisse' original prints.
