      ADOLPHE MOURON CASSANDRE (1901-1968) UNIC. 1932.
      63x47 inches, 160x119 1/2 cm. Alliance Graphique, Paris.
      Condition A: minor repaired tear in upper margin; creases at edges; minor loss in lower margin; fold through lower right corner.
      In the early 1930s, Cassandre designed a few posters in the "Neue Sachlichkeit," the New Realism style. Unlike the hyperrealism of the Swiss approach, Cassandre "augmented" reality to serve his artistic vision, as seen here, where one shoe is larger than the other and the socks are left unfinished. This poster shows that Cassandre is "also a magisterial designer with an airbrush. It is a sober, hyperrealist object poster that is a model of classic design" (Cassandre / Weill p. 62). Mouron 38, Suntory 26, Brown & Reinhold 38, Cassandre / Weill 125, Affiche Art Deco p. 137, Reina Sofia p. 174, Weill 341.
