Cycles Brillant. 1925. A. M. Cassandre.

30 3/8 x 46 1/8 in./77.1 x 117.2 cm

This is one of Cassandre’s most economically realized images, with every line, curve, and shape serving a well-defined function. It is also one of his rarest: it nearly defies logic that such a splendid image was not preserved with more available copies. The reason may well be that this was one of the very first posters ever created by the master.

Available at auction October 30.
