Musee d'Ethnographie du Trocodero, 1930

Colin, Paul poster: Musee d'Ethnographie du Trocodero

This is Paul Colin's great exhibition poster for the Ethnographic Museum in Paris, featuring a monolithic Moai sculpture from Easter Island. He matches the primitive subject matter with a style reminiscent of Picasso's early Cubist works, juxtaposing another mask face-on within the Easter Island piece. The result is a monumental Modernist design.
