"The poster art of Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely is the last body of work of both artists that remains largely unknown to the general public. Shown here for the first time, in magnificent color, are all 41 of Niki's posters as well as 87 by Jean that, along with their joint projects, produce an invaluable catalogue raisonne of the graphic art of this unforgettable couple." "While Jean Tinguely's posters originally seemed like construction sketches for his kinetic objects, they later developed into rotating abstract color compositions. And, within a short time, Niki's posters became playgrounds for her Nanas. Well-padded and acrobatic, sometimes winged or merely a torso, they danced around the advertising columns of the world until the '90s."--BOOK JACKET.
