Details

Located on the Quai d'Orsay, Magic city was a huge Luna-Park that survived until the Second World War. The Surrealists loved it for its entertainment. Grun draws a group of crazy revelers emerging from a heart with a decor of attractions in the background. The poster appears on page 87 of the book "Grun Posters" by Alain Weill, Israel Perry. Published by Queen Art Publishers. Jules-Alexandre Grun (25 May 1868 – 15 February 1934) was a French post-impressionist painter, poster artist, and illustrator. Grun's best known painting is called The Dinner Party, produced in 1911. It was, however, in the fields of poster art and illustration art, for which he was famous. He was employed at a large printing company in Paris and his artistic director was Jules Cheret. Cheret was also his main competitor in poster art. (Wiki) Condition: B+ / small bents along borders, minor discoloration, a small tear was repaired on the lower border.
