Description

This is a reproduction of a Braque that was included in the "UNESCO Traveling Print Exhibition - From Impressionism Till Today" in 1948 - 49 and was printed for UNESCO by Twin Editions, New York. The exhibition included specially printed, high quality reproductions of 50 works by Bonnard to Vlaminck, "Anemones" was number 3 in the series.

The exhibition included an extensive 6 page introduction by Rene Huyghe and toured the world. The Forward stated: "This exhibition of colour reproductions is the first of its type to be prepared by Unesco. Confined to artists who have made significant contributions to world art since 1860, it attempts to illustrate important trends in painting to Impressionism till the present day. In any exhibition restricted by necessity to a maximum of 50 paintings."..."The reproductions included form the first selection to be made from the Unesco Archive, which is now being created to include all available high quality colour reproductions of important periods and phases of painting. This archive is being built up with the active co-operation of members of the International Council of Museums, and Unesco wishes to thank in particular M.Rene Huyghe, Conservateur en Chef du departement de Peintures ed des Dessins au Musee de Louvre, both for the introduction to this catalogue and for his assistance in assembling the exhibition itself."..."This catalogue is designed to make high quality prints more easily available, and to this end, lists publishers and prices, in addition to other information."
