Goldmark Gallery, 20th Century Original Artists' Exhibition Posters

Thursday 3 January to Sunday 27 January
We are delighted to offer for sale a range of original Artists’ Exhibition Posters.
Many of the leading 20th century artists enjoyed designing their own exhibition posters, often in the form of original lithographs printed by some of the great Parisian print ateliers such as the Mourlot Frères studio.
While the poster, by nature, is ephemeral and mint copies are rare, they remain a relatively inexpensive way to buy original prints by artists like Picasso and Matisse and are hugely flexible to display, working in harmony with a broad range of other artworks, styles, and interior settings.
