Nice poster for the exhibition of Jacques Prévert's collages at the Knoedler gallery.
Jacque Prévert (1900-1977) became a popular poet thanks to his colloquial language and his play on words. His poems have since become famous in the French-speaking world and are widely taught in French schools.
In 1957, Jacques Prévert exhibited for the first time at the Maeght Gallery a series of collages, an unusual and unclassifiable artistic genre that he had been practicing with passion since 1948. The Grimaldi Museum in Antibes followed in 1963 and, a year later, the Knoedler Gallery in Paris, which presented 112 collages by Jacques Prévert from his personal collection and those of his friends Picasso, René Bertelé, Marcel Duhamel, André Villers, Betty Bouthoul and Renée Laporte. His collages are a direct extension of his pictorial writing, inspired by the surrealist tradition and a great formal freedom, they play on the detour of aphorisms or popular expressions, the rereading or reappropriation of existing images.
