Description: Artist: KEES VAN DONGEN (1877-1968) Size: 42 7/8 x 62 1/2 in./109 x 159 cm Imp. Françaises Réunis, Paris Primarily known as a painter, Van Dongen created a handful of posters, this being the absolute best of the bunch. His Expressionistic hand brings dazzling life to the well-to-do set attending this annual charity ball for a children's hospital. Below, we see two issues of the newspaper L'Intransigeant - the sponsor for that year's event - which feature Cassandre's iconic poster in miniature. This is the large-format version of the poster. (great art deco)
