This is a 1972 print painted by renowned French painter Pablo Picasso, and designed by Henri Deschamps.
The central image depicts a view of Mougins, France, a small town in the south of France where many famous French artists of the twentieth century lived and worked. The poster bears all of the markings of late period Picasso: the jumbled scrawling that combined everything from primitive art to cubism, an aesthetic that almost encapsulated every stage of career with a rigorous but daring formalism. While one can only discern particles of detail - palm trees there, a roof here - the piece creates an overwhelming sense of vibrancy and exuberance, tinged with the slightly morbid edge that marked much of Picasso's later work. Below, text reads "Picasso Avignon Prolongation", in a frankly minimalist design that only serves to reinforce the image above.
