Georges Mathieu AIR FRANCE POSTER USA 1968
Price: $500.00
Produced for Air France in 1968, this collection of poster highlights one of the airline''s most popular destinations. It were purchased from a woman who purchased them in 1968 and was in the original AF tube. It has never been framed and is in excellent condition. I have recently had it professionally linen lined in order to protect its physical integrity as well as to preserve its colors and investment value. It will frame up beautifully and is magnificent. The poster measures 23. 5 inches by 39 inches. French painter, Georges Mathieu gained an international reputation in the 1950 s as a leading Abstract Expressionist. His large paintings are created very rapidly and impulsively. Despite his unconventional technique, he considers himself a historical painter working with abstract subject matter. Matthieu was born into a family of bankers and first studied law and philosphy before deciding to turn to the visual arts. In 1947, when he exhibited at the Salon of New Realities, he exhibited a cloth made of texture spots springing directly from the tube in a technique attributed to Jackson Pollock. He later exhibited in the United States and Japan. Not content with being ''just a painter'', Mattieu has invented a ''lifestyle'' which for him is the raison d''etre of an artist: this belief is most evident wth is work as editor of a multi-disciplinary magazine devoted to the arts. Mattieu is still active in the arts world in France and around the world. Please note that all of our posters are vintage, non- reproduction works of art. Please see our other posters, prints and ephemera. Thank you! Status: For Sale Reference#: AFUSA Condition: A Year: 1968 Country: FRANCE Height: 39 in. (99.06 cm) Width: 23.5 in.
