Gitanes Poster #2France, 1965
44 x 62 in (112 x 157 cm)
Original artwork / maquette by French artist Raoul Eric Castel (1915-1997) for Gitanes Tobacco, featuring six lit cigarettes wafting smoke up like a campfire. This poster is a working drawing, meaning it was an exploratory drawing used to brainstorm the end result of what the final poster would look like, and is therefore considered an original art piece by the artist. Castel also used gouache paint which is similar to watercolor in its composition, but is designed to be opaque and dries to a flat finish with intense concentrations of large pigments.
