Discover a sophisticated marriage of art history, photographic legacy, and retro design in this exclusive Henri Matisse and 'La Serpentine' poster. Designed for an imaginary art exhibition in 1979 in London, this poster not only serves as a testament to Matisse's enduring impact but also doubles as a tribute to the graphic design aesthetics of the late 1970s.

The photo of Henri Matisse, originally taken in Issy-les-Moulineaux in 1909 by the acclaimed American photographer Edward Steichen, captures the artist at a pivotal moment in his career. Matisse, deeply engrossed in sculpting 'La Serpentine,' offers a glimpse into his multifaceted talent, transcending his more recognised Fauvist paintings and taking his art into three dimensions.

Please note: The photograph in this poster was taken a very long time ago using very old processes and equipment, and so in close-up it appears grainy and a little blurry. We believe however that remaining true to the source is of the utmost importance here, and the grain and slight blur emphasise and enhance its context and appeal.
