Sold - YVES SAINT LAURENT "LOVE" Poster 1979
An iconic Yves Saint Laurent "LOVE" poster from 1979, colour print on paper. An original print by Dinand-Pasquet.
"In 1970, Yves Saint Laurent designed the first in a series of greeting cards in poster form that he would send his friends, collaborators, and clients annually until 2007 (except for 1978 and 1993, VvW). Every year, Saint Laurent adopted a new color palette and created an image using collage, drawings, and gouache. The leitmotif of every card was the word 'LOVE'. Many of the cards were inspired by Morocco, where Saint Laurent frequently created them. Others paid tribute to Georges Braque, Jean Cocteau, Andy Warhol and Henri Matisse." - Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris.
You can find many of the original "LOVE" poster sketches published on the museum's website. The reference picture (via Pinterest) above shows Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé surrounded by "LOVE" posters in their Parisian studio, c. 1986.
A collection of Yves Saint Laurent "LOVE" posters has been auctioned in Paris in January 2019. All posters from the 1970s fetched four-figure prices. The poster from 1979 went for 1.430,- EUR.
Very good. Minor yellowing to the top edge. Minor signs of use and age as per detail pictures. No pinholes, rips or torn edges. The poster has not been folded and will be delivered rolled and in a protective tube. The faint shadows visible in some of the pictures are due to reflection of light when photographing. They do not exist on the actual poster.
