About This Item

Hamburg: , 1960. Offset lithographic on paper. Vintage outsize A0 format, sheet size: 112 x 82.6 cm. Light creases from old folds, some very slight cracking of the colour surface and one or two mild scuff, minute closed tear to the right-hand edge, but overall very good. Presented float mounted in a black museum box-style frame. Superb large-scale poster for the JATP tour of Germany in 1960, featuring Ella Fitzgerald, the Jimmy Giuffre Three, Paul Smith Quartet, Roy Eldridge, and the Shelly Manne Quintet. An example of the work of Kieser's early collaborative atelier with typographer Hans Michel (1952-62) which produced some truly remarkable work, graphically highly original, and imbued with a great sensitivity to the aesthetic of the artists being promoted. Here red, black and white typography in lower case sans serif is overlaid on a portrait of Ella in black on red to stunning effect. Produced solely for the German tour this is an uncommon poster, particularly so in the A0 format in such sharp condition.
