In 1951, Salvador Dali was commissioned to create illustrations for Dante’s “La Commedia Divina” (The Divine Comedy) in celebration of Dante’s 700th birthday. There are 100 works, divided into “Heaven”, “Hell”, and “Purgatory”, each one representing a canto from Dante’s epic poem. We are very excited to have 9 of them on display here at the gallery. They are all very beautiful and unique, we invite you to visit and see for yourself!
The opening evening of our show was well attended and successful. All 55 posters were hung throughout the gallery creating a visually exciting environment and provoking lively conversation.
If you were unable to attend the show, we have all the Maitres posted on our website for your viewing pleasure. The exhibition will be hung in its entirety through the end of the month.
We’re getting ready for the Maitres de l’Affiche show this Saturday! Here are some photos of us hanging the artwork:
We hope to see you there! RSVP from our website http://www.zygmanvossgallery.com/event.php?eventID=8&rsvp=y
We are preparing for our upcoming show with all 55 pieces coming back from the framers this week! The frames are beautiful with no mitered edges and gold or silver leafed corners.
The posters are over 100 yrs old. They were created by the same artist who invented offset lithography, the famous Jules Cheret. Cheret was not only an artist but a business man. He realized people loved the big posters but they were not easily removable from the walls. He decided to reduce the image down, put it on better paper, and identify it with the Maitres de l’affiche stamp in the corner. It was sold as a subscription.
Artists would vie for the opportunity to be be included in this series. You, as the subscriber, would receive 4 a month, one would always be by Jules Cheret.
At the end of the season Cheret would offer you the opportunity to purchase a dust cover created by him. You could then take the collection to the book binder and to have an album of important posters created.
This is going to be a truly magnificent show with many decorative lithographs that will make affordable fine art gifts for you and your loved ones!
We present you with Les Maîtres de l’Affiche (The Masters of the Poster) – an exhibit of historically significant decorative lithographs. Please join us at our opening reception on December 11, 2010 from 5pm – 7pm – just in time for the Holidays! These decorative lithographs make great and affordable fine art gifts for your loved ones (or for yourself!).
This collection of 55 original lithographs represents the beginning of the color revolution in the world and is one of the most influential art publications in history. Lithograph posters were originally created for industrial advertising but were quickly viewed as collectible works of art. Over 100 years old, these French lithograph posters are still highly sought out by art collectors everywhere. This exhibition offers enthusiasts and collectors a unique opportunity to collect well-known artists from the 19th century at way below current market values.

Don’t miss the rare opportunity to see the complete collection of Salvador Dali’s Hippie Suite at Zygman Voss Gallery!
This amazing collection of 11 etchings is Dali’s interpretation of the “Love and Peace” years. Salvador Dali created 11 drypoint etchings with hand coloring in 1969- which he entitled ‘Les Hippies’. The inspiration came from photographs taken in India by his friend and publisher, Pierre Argillet.
These exquisite etchings were created at the peak of his maturity as an artist – which is evidenced in his technique throughout each piece. Surrealist characters and bizarre situations converge amidst intricate whirls and golden halos. Each piece is hand signed on Japon paper.
Salvador Dali’s Hippie Suite is on display at Zygman Voss Gallery until December 8th. Stop in the gallery and see many more Dali’s on display!
