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.

Description

Original lithographic poster.

Printed by Petersburg Press, USA.

Published to promote the New York Metropolitan Opera's production of a Stravinsky triple bill of The Rite of Spring, The Nightingale, and Oedipus Rex, with sets and costumes designed by Hockney.

"What I liked about the program of The Rite of Spring, The Nightingale, and Oedipus Rex at the Metropolitan Opera was how you went from Stravinsky's most kinetic to his most static work for the stage--seemingly from birth and awareness to self-knowledge and death. We conceived it as one total piece of theater..." -David Hockney, on his designs for the 1981 New York Metropolitan Opera's Stravinsky production.
