The Revue Nègre was one of the key events in mid-war Parisian life. From one day to the next, it allowed Parisians to discover jazz: coloured craziness invaded Paris and the Charleston became a fashionable dance.
It led to the glory of two of its participants: Josephine Baker, the star of the show, and Paul Colin, the poster artist.
He produced this first masterpiece using just two basic colours, red and black.
Framed in a black and gold contemporary frame with no glass, instead protected by a plastic wallet.
18 inches (46cm) wide, 22 inches (56cm) high.
In excellent condition.
