Original Artists' Posters

Many of the world's leading artists have enjoyed making posters for their exhibitions.

These often took the form of original lithographs or screenprints, printed by some of the great Parisian ateliers.

The poster, by nature, is ephemeral and mint copies are rare so we are delighted to offer you these beautiful examples.
 
Lucio Fontana PortraitLucio Fontana was an Italian painter, sculptor and theorist of Argentine birth. He was mostly known as the founder of Spatialism and his ties to Arte Povera. Born in Rosario, a province of Santa Fe, Argentina to Italian immigrant parents, he was the son of the sculptor Luigi Fontana.

Fontana spent the first years of his life in Italy and came back to Argentina in 1905, where he stayed until 1922, working as a sculptor along with his father, and then on his own. In 1926, he participated in the first exhibition of Nexus, a group of young Argentine artists working in Rosario de Santa Fé. In 1927 Fontana returned to Italy and studied under the sculptor Adolfo Wildt, at Accademia di Brera from 1928 to 1930. It was there where he presented his first exhibition in 1930, organized by the Milano art gallery Il Milione.

During the following decade he journeyed through Italy and France, working with abstract and expressionist painters. In 1935 he joined the association Abstraction-Création in Paris and from 1936 to 1949 made expressionnist sculptures in ceramic and bronze. In 1939, he joined the Corrente, a Milan group of expressionist artists.
