Maurice Realier-Dumas (1860-1928)
Original lithographic poster printed in colors, printed by Camis, Paris, France 1896, on 2 sheets. Condition: Fine (B+) folds with minor losses primarily limited to margins, backed on linen.
Sheet size: 66 H. X 21 W.
Designed by Maurice Realier-Dumas in 1896, this original antique poster for the weekly magazine "Polichinelle" shows mother and daughter reading this humorous publication. Appropriately, on the cover is Punchinello, the magazines namesake, the classic black-masked figure from the commedia dell'arte with his long crimson nose and hunched back. Realier-Dumas, an academic painter and prominent in the prestigious Societe des Artistes Francais, created a unique style perfectly suited for posters. As we see here, he used elongated figures, heavily outlined and flat colors on an unconventional poster size, considerably narrow for its size.
