This unique poster was published for Picasso’s last big group of lithographs in 1969 called ‘Portrait Imaginaires.’ The litho’s were printed by his good friend Marcel Salinas and exhibited in 1971 in the gallery Du Passeur in Paris. 16 different lithographic posters were printed to highlight this exhibition. The original litho’s were sold in editions of 500, 250 prints in France and Europe and 250 in the UK and USA. These goateed, lusty figures were called ‘musketeers’ by his friends.
This lithographic poster however is one of kind, it has been signed in red pencil by Picasso even before the lettering was added for the Gallery. This makes this poster a truly unique work of art. It is adressed to Mr. Bernard, a café-owner in Mougins in the South of France, a café which Picasso frequented at the time.
Signed by Picasso on May 4 1972.
Dimensions 74 x 52,5 cm.

This elegant flacon designed by Lalique in 1920 was created for the House of Lubin. However it was not very well marketed and the perfume did not sell well enough it is now considered a Lalique classic. The name Lac Dor is referring to the ‘gold lake’ which can be seen as the water of the Indian Taj Mahal reflects its golden domes in the white marble pool.
Remaining bottles were later re-used in 1940 for the perfume ‘Sur deux Notes.’
Height: 13,5 cm.
