$200.00

In stock

This artwork is from Les Maitres de L’Affiche series; miniature versions of outstanding stone lithograph artworks of the most important advertising posters by the finest artists. “The prolific English artist Dudley Hardy is best known for his work for publications and the theatre, both as illustrator and poster artist. His work for commercial firms is rarer. Yet his contributions to English poster art is considerable. He really introduced the colour poster to England” (Rennert, PAI-XVIII,129) The majestic, strangely clad ‘Chieftain’ with the mystical swirling stripes from his hat, is set against a scarlet backdrop. The lucid floating white type ‘The Chieftain’ beckons us into the poster. A typically effective Hardy design.
