Nice - Cote d'Azure 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 - Cote d'Azure lithographic posters were printed at Mourlot to promote the famous French Riviera and were immediately sought after by collectors. It is a superb example of Matisse' cut outs adapted to the popular French poster. This work is a high quality vintage poster in excellent condition and is now available at DKH for collectors of Matisse' prints.
