Art by Eduardo Munoz Bachs (1937-2001)


29½ x 19¾in. (75 x 50 cm)


This comedy was directed by Jacques Tati, where he again plays the popular Monsieur Hulot, and is considered a masterpiece of Tati's work. It is made up of six sequences, each linked by two characters, who encounter one another over and over during the course of a day. Cuban posters have a very distinctive vibrant style. Eduardo Munoz Bachs, is considered the most influential and prolific poster designer, and a huge supporter of the Cuban School of Film Posters. This great design for Jacques Tati's 1967 comedy is one of the most sought-after. As it is a silkscreen the printing looks smudged and slightly uneven. This very rare original release Cuban poster does not surface very often.
