Description:
Festival International du Film a Cannes (1946) poster, French Artist: Paul Colin (1892-1985) Framed Dimensions: 61 1/4 x 45 1/4 in. (155.5 x 114.8 cm) Unframed Dimensions: 61 x 45 in. (155 x 114.3 cm) The Cannes Film Festival is the world\’s largest and most celebrated film festival. The first international film festival was held in Venice in 1932. As the decade progressed the festival began to show marked signs of bias towards the fascist powers of Europe. The situation came to a head in 1939 when Jean Renoir\’s French anti-war film, a sure bet to win, failed to get the top prize. Instead it was awarded jointly to Germany for the German Ministry of Propaganda film Olympia, and Italy for Luciano Serra\’s Pilota, a film whose supervising director was Vittorio Mussolini, the Italian dictator\’s son. The French, British and Americans all withdrew from the competition in disgust. As an alternative, France proposed its own international event, which would embrace fair and open competition. The location chosen was Cannes in southern France, with the first festival scheduled for September 1939. However, the declaration of war in Europe caused the inaugural festival to be cancelled after the opening night (the only film that managed to be shown was William Dieterle\’s Hunchback of Notre Dame). It was not until 1946 that the first full-length festival took place, and in the spirit of peace and diplomacy, all countries that entered a film that year won an award. It is interesting to note that the festival\’s first jury president was Louis Lumière – one of the co-founding fathers of cinema. The 1946 poster depicts a camera in place of a machine gun, with the world\’s flags instead of bullets. Bold and vibrant, the poster is a moving statement on the power of the arts to heal and overcome the violence the world had endured for six years. Paul Colin is considered one of France\’s greatest poster artists. He designed over fourteen hundred posters, mainly for the theatre and advertising. He also designed theatre sets and costumes.

Description:
PAUL COLIN (1892-1986) LA NUIT DE PARIS. 1949. 23 1/2x15 1/2 inches, 59 3/4x39 1/2 cm. Bedos & Cie., Paris. Condition B+: tears, repaired tears, creases and restoration at edges and in image; restored loss at top edge slightly into text; toned. For this charity event entitled "Parisian Night," Colin developed an exceptionally clever and amusing graphic idea. He uses a sophisticated cut-out technique and the paper's color to delineate a couple against the black background. A closer look reveals just how truly this image depicts a "Parisian Night," as we realize that the man's eye is the Arc d'Triomphe, his nose - the Eiffel Tower, his bowtie - La Madeleine and his opera glasses - Notre Dame, while the woman's necklace is Montmartre's Sacre Coeur. This is the smaller format. Colin 152.

Description:
PAUL COLIN (1892-1986) TABARIN. 1928. 62 1/2x47 inches, 158 3/4x119 1/2 cm. H. Chachoin, Paris. Condition B+: repaired tears and minor restored losses at edges; abrasions and overpainting in image; creases and restoration along vertical and horizontal folds. The Bal Tabarin, a popular night club in Montmartre, was opened in 1904 by Auguste Bosc, a composer of some renown in Paris during the "gay nineties." The club made its reputation with the Belle Époque favorite, the cancan, continuing to perform it long after the First World War, when the craze had all but died elsewhere. In the mid-20s two retired dancers infused the club with new life by introducing the Charleston. The passage of time and the changing trends are all illustrated in a spectacular manner here, with three different women dancing three separate dances all melded into one image. One element is clear among all the different characters in this poster - each is exposing enough skin to tantalize the viewer to attend an event there. This is one of the most sophisticated compositions Colin designed, infused with incredible movements of the various arms and legs, and containing different layers, combining three images into one. Using only three colors, Colin pays a flamboyant tribute to the art of dancing and has created a classic image reflecting the energy of Paris during the Jazz Age. This is the rare larger format.
