MAC-Assouline Four of Hearts Poster

USA c. 2003

42 x 30 in (107 x 76 cm)



PLEASE NOTE: The item for sale is a 42 x 30 print backed on foam core WITHOUT the playing card number in the corners.

The Four of Hearts features a near-full body shot of a person with a stylized silhouette composed of multiple stripes painted along their body. It resembles a thermal image, with yellow paint at the core, spreading out to red, pink, and dark/light blue. A red heart is painted on their lower back.

"The Deck of Cards was conceived by Assouline, who were inspired by MAC Cosmetics' irreverent imaging and makeup artistry. Working with the MAC Creative Team, the idea grew as some of the world's most renowned designers, musicians and artists created unique body designs that became this provocative deck of playing cards. The response was phenomenal. All of the designs submitted were not only original and creative but reflected the individual personalities of the well-known participants." Released as a deck of standard-size playing cards and later as a book collection of the images, portions of proceeds from sales benefited the MAC Aids Fund.
