Jean Carlu created this classic Art Deco design for the Paris Summer Fair in 1935. Here we see a elegant couple peering through opera glasses during a performance under the stars. Few posters are as evocative of the sophistication and glamour of the era.
The great works of Carlu, one of the four leaders of Art Deco in France, are extremely difficult to find. This poster, along with his Fetes poster of the previous year, are amongst the most sought after.
