Dear Clients and Friends-
La Fete de L’Affiche, Villemot, 1984, $900
Thank you for the amazing response to our new show “The Posters of Fernand Mourlot” featuring original works by Picasso, Calder, Cocteau, Matisse and Chagall.
Many of you came a long distance to see the new collection. If you missed the opening- don’t worry, the show will be open in our showroom through April 13th.
We have about three more weeks to share this amazing and rare material with you in our Berkeley showroom and then, well, you know, were outta here. Weekdays you can find us Tuesday- Thursday from 11-5 and by appointment. Upcoming Open Weekends: April 2-3 and April 9-10.
The show is not available on the web. I encourage you to come in and have an authentic experience with the art. In addition to the 25 original lithographs, we have access to about 100 others – we have a catalogue- which you can order through our exclusive arrangement.
Chagall’s artwork was influenced by his dreams, by his rural childhood and by his love of dance, of the bible, and of each of his wives, both true loves.
Jean Cocteau, nicknamed ‘the Frivolous Prince’ . was a polymath- a poet, film maker, and artist whose avant garde films were tremendously influential in ushering in the French New Wave. His compatriots included Edith Piaf, Colette, Picasso, Coco Chanel, and Modigliani and many other important figures of the twentieth century.
We also have a ton of new acquisitions to share with you but they are not on the web yet. Orangina by Villemot is back
Come and get em while they are hot!
Happy Collecting –
