MONTMARTRE

£1,500.00

Original 1954 British 30 inch x 40 inch Quad Poster for the 1951 Jean-Claude Bernard Documentary MONTMARTRE (MONTMARTRE NOCTURNE), with Cinematography by Jack Cardiff and featuring Patachou (Henriette Ragon), Robert Rocca, Pomme and Yvonne Darle.

A 24 minute Documentary filmed at the famous Montmartre cabaret Au Lapin Agile, at 22 rue des Saules, Paris, France. Pablo Picasso’s 1905 oil painting, “Au Lapin Agile” helped to make this cabaret world-famous.

The superb poster art is by Charles Mozley (1914 – 1991).

Born in Sheffield on 29th May 1914, Mozley trained at the Sheffield School of Art and then at the Royal College of Art from 1933 to 1937. He taught anatomy, life drawing and lithography at Camberwell School of Art from 1938 to 1939. He was a Lieutenant-Colonel in military intelligence during the war, ‘involved in work on camouflage’. After the war he went freelance, producing book illustrations, film and theatre posters, book jackets and posters for Shell. He produced posters for British European Airlines Corporation through the agency Colman, Prents & Varley; a poster for ‘150 Years of Lithography’ for the Victoria and Albert Museum; and a mural for the festival of Britain. He produced some fine posters for Alexander Korda’s An Ideal Husband from Tony Wysard’s original rough.

Printed by W.E. Berry Ltd., Bradford.

The poster is in very good folded condition.
